The annual gathering of the North American Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism met in Irving, Texas, on June 6-9, 2021. Twenty five agencies, seven congregations and many individuals were among more than 80 attendees.

Antisemitism is on the rise across the globe, and we are seeing an alarming increase here in North America as well. Findings published in the new Pew study on American Jews report greater than 75% of the Jews surveyed say there is more antisemitism in the U.S. today than five years ago, and 6 in 10 report having direct personal experience with antisemitism in the last 12 months.

In the aftermath of the rocket attacks on Israel, incidents are taking place in the U.S. and Canada at an unprecedented rate. The Anti-Defamation League reported that in the week after the fighting erupted (May 7-14), “it found [on Twitter] more than 17,000 tweets using variations of the phrase ‘Hitler was right.'”

Hate speech is only part of the attack. Jewish places of business are being vandalized, synagogues graffitied with swastikas, individual Jews assaulted and worse. This reprehensible venom of hatred for Jews being spewed out is reminiscent of a past that culminated in the Holocaust.
