The goals of this article are to define anti-Semitism; demonstrate the necessity for accurately labeling anti-Semitic behavior as such; provide longitudinal evidence of anti-Semitism and the mistreatment of Jews and the absence of addressing Jewish issues by the counseling profession; prepare a compendium of the preceding—and in so doing, create an awareness of the resulting problem. The author posits that the near universal failure of those committed to multicultural counseling to rail against anti-Semitism and embrace the notion of Jews as a culturally distinct group poses a serious threat to the delivery of bias-free counseling and thus the image that the counseling profession presents of itself to other mental health professions and the general public.
