Yale Launches International Study of Anti-Semitism

Dr. Charles Small, Director of the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Anti-Semitism (YIISA), has announced the creation of the new International Association for the Study of Anti-Semitism (IASA). It is the first organization to bring academics together to study the topic. The initiative was disclosed at this week's Global Forum in Jerusalem.

"It is imperative to engage in education during these times when some national leaders and social movements call openly for the destruction of Israel and its people in the most heinous manner, while other leaders and scholars in other parts of the world do not want to fathom this rapidly changing reality," said Dr. Small.
