Founded in 2018, Moment’s Anti-Semitism Monitor is a carefully fact-checked website of anti-Semitic incidents around the world. It is curated by one of the world’s top anti-Semitism experts—Ira N. Forman, the former U.S. Special Envoy of the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, who now teaches at Georgetown University and is a senior fellow at the Washington, DC-based Moment Institute. At a time of rising anti-Semitism and the proliferation of disinformation, the Anti-Semitism Monitor is a critical resource used by government officials, Human Rights NGOs, the public, academics, students and the media, including The Wall Street Journal and the Times of Israel. “Understanding the different ways anti-Semitism manifests itself is absolutely essential if you’re going to learn to counter it,” says Forman.

Moment’s Anti-Semitism Monitor is unique because:

  • It is curated by experts, not algorithms.
  • It is updated on a weekly basis.
  • It provides thoughtful, balanced monthly findings and analysis.
  • It is based on credible news sources and news stories that do not have a strong ideological slant.
  • It illustrates the different nature of anti-Semitism in specific countries and regions.
  • It includes incidents that are not necessarily anti-Semitic in nature but that raise questions of anti-Semitism.
  • It is provided as a public service on a free, easy to use platform that is accessible to all.
