Letter from the Founder, Dr. Moshe Kantor
The Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry provides an academic framework for the interdisciplinary research of European Jewry from the end of World War II until the present day. It has become the reference center for the research and monitoring of European Jewish life, including the challenges it faces.
The Center engages with European Jewish communities as well as with national and international organisations for a better understanding of geopolitical developments and specific issues affecting Jewish communities in Europe.
Amid a worrying rise of open and violent antisemitism worldwide, occasionally resulting in terrorist attacks, establishing and updating a comprehensive database of antisemitism became imperative.
The Center’s Annual Report on Antisemitism Worldwide is the only report of its kind with such a global perspective and historic comparable context.
We are proud that over the years, by monitoring, collecting and analyzing antisemitism worldwide, the Kantor Center annual report has been recognised and endorsed by numerous personalities and institutions including His Holiness the Pope and the U.S. Congress, making it a credible, reliable and informative working tool for policy makers.
I wish the Kantor Center continued success and look forward to its continued growth and
