Mission Statement

The mission of the Senate Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism is to collaborate with our colleagues in the House, law enforcement, the White House, federal agencies, state and local government, educators, advocates, clergy, and other stakeholders to combat anti-Semitism by educating and empowering our communities. We shall accomplish this by supporting legislative efforts to combat anti-Semitism, promoting Holocaust education, and bringing the issue of condemning and combating anti-Semitism to the forefront of our national conversation. We will build upon the important work done by the House of Representatives’ Bipartisan Task Force for Combating Anti-Semitism, working together to address this urgent issue and to identify and highlight areas where we can take action and develop solutions to eliminate Anti-Semitic hatred from our communities and from our country.
