More than 1,500 Rabbis Say ADL Not ‘Competent to Identify’ or ‘Combat’ Antisemitism

The Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) stated Tuesday more than 1,500 rabbis agree the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is “no longer competent to identify, let alone combat, antisemitism.”

The rabbis’ statement is in response to the ADL announcing a partnership with Hillel International to document antisemitism on college campuses. Hillel has a presence in more than 550 colleges globally.

The ADL and Hillel “will not always treat anti-Israel activity as antisemitism,” the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports.

An ADL spokesperson told the JTA, “Anti-Israel activism in and of itself is not antisemitism.” This means not all Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) actions on college campuses will be documented as antisemitism.
