What is it?
Where does it come from?
What do we do about it?
A four-part class with Rabbi David Edleson.
Are you interested in learning more about the sources, causes and history of anti-Semitism, and better understand of some of the events happening around us?
In this class, we will explore anti-Semitism in the early writings of Christianity, in medieval literature, and in modern times. We will use Bari Weiss’ book How to Fight Anti-Semitism as our core text, and will also read from David Nirenberg’s Anti-Judaism, Kathleen Belew’s Bring the War Home, and early Zionist and civil rights writings on the subject. We will look at modern online forms of anti-Semitism, as well.
In the final session, we will focus on what actions we might take, and strategies we can employ in addressing the current rise in anti-Semitism and other forms of hate.
