In response to a growth in global antisemitism, Israel’s Mission to the UN set up a "No to antisemitism" pavilion at the UN General Assembly this week.

The goal is to offer world leaders attending the 73rd annual General Assembly a chance to stand up to antisemitism.

The Pavilion has been operating in the lobby of the entrance to the UN headquarters in New York since the UN General Assembly kicked off on Monday and will be available until Thursday, September 27 and those participating have been taking to social media with the hashtag #no2antisemitism.

Several of the leaders who visited the pavilion come from countries known for antisemitism including Poland, Austria and the Ukraine.





Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said in a statement: “As we see Antisemitism growing in Europe and other places in the world, this is a great opportunity for the world’s leaders to let their people know that antisemitism has no place in their country or the world."


Danon also speaks of the many forms antisemitism has taken: "Incidents in which we see Jewish graves desecrated, the spreading of BDS on college campuses, and calls for the destruction of Israel proves that Antisemitism can take many forms, but is fueled by hatred of the Jewish people. Our campaign is an effort to utilize social media to push back against this age-old bigotry.”
