The 26-page program has three central goals: preventing antisemitism in all its forms, protecting and fostering Jewish life, and promoting Holocaust research, education and remembrance.

With these purposes, steps are proposed to create a network of organizations across Europe to flag antisemitism content online, to provide EU countries €24 million in 2022 to better protect Jewish sites and public spaces, and to promote Holocaust awareness and education, the Commission said that it would create a network of less-known Holocaust sites, such as hiding places or shooting grounds. The strategy also committed to the creation of a network of young ambassadors to promote Holocaust remembrance.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, on the other hand, asserted that Europe can only progress if Jewish communities feel safe.

In turn, Vice President for Promoting the European Way of Life Margaritis Schinas, claimed that antisemitism is incompatible with regional values and that the strategy, the first of its kind, accounts for the commitment to fight it.
