Please join us for our second session on Tuesday, May 10, 7:00-8:30 pm
Antisemitism is on the rise in the US. Even many well-informed Americans, including Jews, don’t understand the history and pervasive nature of what has been called “the oldest hatred in the world”. The rise of high school and college campus hate crimes, attacks on places of worship, and other incidents leave us perplexed and anxious for the safety of our neighbors, friends, and relatives.
About six months ago the social justice committees from Temple Beth Israel and First Parish in Waltham formed a partnership to address antisemitism. Working together, we decided to present educational programs focusing on the history of antisemitism, current tropes, and ways to take action against antisemitism through allyship.
Join us for the second virtual session on Tuesday, May 10 from 7-8:30pm. Come learn about modern tropes, white supremacist groups and building allyship in this session. Participation in the prior session is not required to attend this one.
