Republic of Serbia 2005
A great deal of antisemitic graffiti was reported in 2005 on the walls of Jewish facilities, as well as on property of institutions allegedly under Jewish control. Numerous nationalist far right organizations are active in Serbia, some closely connected to the Serbian Orthodox Church.
The Jewish community
The Jewish community in Serbia and Montenegro has some 3,000 members out of a total population of 7 million. Most live in Belgrade, the capital, and the rest are dispersed among Novi Sad, Zemun, Subotica and a few smaller cities. The roof organization is the Federation of Jewish Communities of Serbia and Montenegro (FJCSM), located in Belgrade. The Jewish Museum in Belgrade operates a database on the Holocaust and collects testimonies from survivors. The American Joint Distribution Committee supports local activities and enhancement of the cultural and economic life of the communities. Although there are no Jewish educational institutions, Hebrew is taught at the community level. At Sajmisthe, an eternally lit menorah memorializes Jews persecuted during World War II.
