Combat Anti-Semitism

Combat anti-Semitism (CAS) is a non-partisan, global grassroots movement of individuals and organizations, across all religions and faiths, united around the goal of ending anti-Semitism. CAS supports and highlights the work of its many partner organizations and the efforts of governments and other bodies trying to fight anti-Semitism around the world. 

Through its programs, CAS attempts to educate about anti-Semitism, report on its various manifestations, give a platform for people to tell their personal stories, thank those making a difference, and most of all, activate people to make a difference with unique campaigns initiated by CAS and those of its partners.

CAS recognizes anti-Semitism on all sides of the ideological spectrum, including the effort to deny the Jewish people their right to self-determination in their ancestral homeland, Israel and to delegitimize the profound historic, religious, and ethnic connection of the Jewish people to Israel, an integral pillar of Jewish identity.

Since its launching in February 2019, over 150 organizations and 125,000 individuals have joined the movement by signing our campaign’s pledge. The CAS Pledge draws upon the IHRA international definition of anti-Semitism and its list of specific behaviors used to discriminate against the Jewish people and the Jewish State of Israel.

The movement was launched by several individuals with the support and encouragement of its many partner organizations. The movement is intended to be non-partisan. Individuals and organizations from all backgrounds and interests passionate about eradicating anti-Semitism in the world are encouraged to join the campaign.

There is no financial requirement for an organization to join the coalition. All we request is a high-resolution logo and an effort to inform your membership about the campaign  to help us grow the people involved in our movement. One of the main goals of the movement is to help enhance the important work of the many organizations in this country and around the world, engaged in the fight against anti-Semitism.

Humanity flourishes when religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity is respected and we hope to encourage understanding and set an example through our work.  Anti-Semitism is the oldest form of bigotry and by working to eliminate it, we hope tragedies like the holocaust or any incidents of hate inspired speech or violence perpetrated against the Jewish people, Israel, or any discriminated group are reduced significantly.
