Liora Rez

Liora Rez is the Executive Director of StopAntisemitism, a grassroots watchdog organization that publicly exposes antisemitic behavior and creates real consequences for those who espouse bigotry toward the Jewish people and nation.

A refugee from the former Soviet Union, where antisemitism was rampant, Rez was all too familiar with its dangers. Sadly, in the United States, she encountered disturbingly similar rhetoric and behaviors.

In 2018, in response to an alarming rise of antisemitic incidents, StopAntisemitism was founded to hold antisemites accountable for their actions. StopAntisemitism takes the fight to the bad actors—exposing them online, on college campuses, in corporations, in government, and anywhere else they feel empowered.

Rez has engineered StopAntisemitism’s modern approach to combatting antisemitism. Using her expertise in digital marketing, Rez harnessed the power of social media to create a vast network of activists who work together to identify and create consequences for those who perpetrate antisemitic tropes, engage in inciteful antisemitic rhetoric, and commit antisemitic attacks.

In just three years, StopAntisemitism’s reach has expanded to millions of people, and its activism has resulted in the expulsion of antisemitic students, the firing of antisemitic employees, and the public embarrassment of antisemitic political activists.

Despite facing harassment and threats for her work fighting antisemitism, Rez remains relentless in her quest to hold perpetrators accountable. Rez has written extensively on the topic of antisemitism.

Her articles have been published in prominent outlets including Newsweek and The Jerusalem Post. In 2019 and 2020, she was named one of “The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life” by the The Algemeiner.
