From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Office To Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism is a part of the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor Affairs (DRL) at the United States Department of State. It is headed by the Special Envoy To Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism (SEAS). The office "advocates U.S. policy on anti-Semitism both in the United States and internationally, develops and implements policies and projects to support efforts to combat anti-Semitism."

The Office was created by the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004. Gregg Rickman was sworn the first SEAS on May 22, 2006.[1] The office has remained opened since the beginning of the Obama administration.[2] On November 23, 2009 a new special envoy, Hannah Rosenthal was sworn into office by Obama administration.[3] Rosenthal is former head of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, and former executive director of the Chicago Foundation for Women.[4]
