Definition: (based on JFREJ definitions)Anti-Semitism is the system of ideas, based on white supremacy and Christian dominance, passed down through a society’s institutions to enable the scapegoating of Jews, and the ideological or physical targeting of Jews that results from that.Like all oppressions, it has deep historical roots and uses exploitation, marginalization, discrimination and violence as its tools. Like all oppressions it contains elements of dehumanization and degradation — lies and stereotypes about Jews — and also a mythology. The myth changes and adapts to different times and places, but fundamentally the myth says that Jews have secret powers and are to blame for society’s problems.

I once read something really interesting about this, but can’t remember where… like Jewish groups didn’t lobby to be classified as a “minority” group, and so that’s why white Jewish folks aren’t considered minorities at the moment in the US in a lot of contexts!
