Antisemitism: Reclaiming the conversation

May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Description

6 sessions | April: 20, 27, May: 4, 11,18, 25
Thursdays 7:00-8:30 PM ET | HYBRID

As we navigate a world with rising white nationalism, antisemitism, and threats to democracy, it can be difficult to distinguish real threats from fear tactics. This course is to help discern our path for building Jewish safety and a vision for a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural world, as well as being able to identify what impedes and divides us, both currently and historically.

Over six sessions, a range of outstanding speakers and facilitators will teach the history of antisemitism and its connections to other forms of oppression, as well as how we can take action to fight antisemitism rooted in our progressive values.

Course sessions:

  • 4/20 – “From Anti-Judaism and Anti-Semitism: Is There a Difference?” with Dr. Shaul Magid
  • 4/27 – “Antisemitism and White Christian Nationalism” with Ben Lorber of Political Research Associates
  • 5/4 – “A Black Jewish Perspective on Fighting Racism and Antisemitism” with Rebecca Pierce
  • 5/11 – “How has Antisemitism divided our movements for Justice in the US?” led by Sophie Ellman-Golan
  • 5/18 – “Antisemitism and Israel/Palestine” led by Emma Saltzberg from Diaspora Alliance
  • 5/25 – Facilitated Reflection + integration

Each class will also include a 15 minute schmooze period at 6:45 before the class begins.
