Antisemitism Defined

Lappin Foundation adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism: “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”

Read the full text of IHRA’s definition here.

The goals of Lappin Foundation’s efforts to teach and commemorate the Holocaust are to:

  • Honor the lives and the memory of the victims and survivors of the Holocaust
  • Heed the lessons of the Holocaust
  • Demonstrate the dangers of discrimination and dehumanization
  • Nurture kindness and compassion in young people for a just and humane society
