Jewish news outlets worldwide call to fight rising antisemitism

Jewish media around the world published an open deploring the rise in antisemitism in the aftermath of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attacks and Israel’s war on Gaza.

The joint statement was initiated by the Jewish News in London in partnership with The Jerusalem Post. Organisers said it would appear in 29 media outlets in seven countries including France, Mexico, Argentina, Australia and South Africa, with text in English, Spanish and French.

The letter argues that outside the Middle East, “a second, global front” is emerging, “targeting Jews on campus, at work, on the streets, and at home.” While acknowledging that critics will “dismiss every word in this piece,” including “Jews who tell you this article doesn’t speak for them,” the statement contends that the “level of fear among our readers is like nothing in memory.” 

Outlets publishing the letter include Australian Jewish News; Radio Chai (France); Radio Jai (Argentina); in Ohio, Cleveland, Columbus and Akron Jewish News; JNS; Jewish Telegraph (U.K.); Washington Jewish Week; South African Jewish Report; Baltimore Jewish Times; Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle; Detroit Jewish News; IJN — Denver; St. Louis Jewish Light; Enlacejudio.com (Mexico); The Jewish Standard; New Jersey Jewish News; The Jewish Star; Diario Judio (Mexico); Southern Jewish Life magazine; TC Jewfolk and Cincy Jewfolk.
