After San Francisco Cafe Targeted with Graffiti, Professor Dollinger Discusses Rise in Antisemitism

MISSION LOCAL (SAN FRANCISCO) -- While some activists have questioned the numbers on the ADL tracker because it has included signs held at protests, Marc Dollinger, a Jewish Studies professor who teaches a course on antisemitism and social justice at San Francisco State University, said that identifying what’s antisemitism is complicated — and the ADL offers the best tracker available.

Also, he said, how exactly incidents are converted to statistics shouldn’t be the takeaway amid the recent incidents. The focus, he said, should be the clear spike happening now.
