Jewish Human Rights Watch (JHRW) is a UK-based pro-Israel organisation founded by Emmanuel Weiss in February 2015.[1]

Its aim is to counter the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for Palestinian rights.[2]

In 2016 JHRW were unsuccessful in a judicial review against three UK local authorities who had passed council motions critical of Israel and supportive of the BDS movement.
