(JNS) The U.S. Department of Justice will host a “Summit on Combating Anti-Semitism” next week, consisting of Jewish communal leaders alongside “administration leadership.”

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency first reported the event.

Sessions during the July 15 summit include “combating anti-Semitism while respecting the First Amendment,” “anti-Semitism on campus” and “prosecuting hate crimes.”

It will be concluded with a “fireside chat” with “administration leadership,” which has yet to be specified.

Among religious groups, Jews are the leading target of hate crimes annually.
