ADL has a dual mission. The first part is to expose and combat anti-Semitism.
Millions of Jews in the United States and around the world are confronted with various forms of hate and vitriol. Anti-Semitism today may look different than in generations past but its scourge and sting are just as painful.
We make sure no one forgets the Holocaust. Our education programs introduce young people to the atrocities of Nazi Europe with eye witness accounts, making it a lens through which to recognize where hate can lead if left unchecked.
ADL also exposes anti-Semitic words and actions—some linked to deeply engrained, centuries-old anti-Jewish bias—and conducts detailed polls to track American and global trends.
