Antisemitism, Here and Now
Fri / Jan 28 / 7:15 pm – immediately following services / 87th Street and Online
Dr. Deborah Lipstadt
Antisemitism has been called “the oldest hatred,” yet many people aren’t sure exactly what it is. Dr. Deborah Lipstadt, a world-renowned scholar of antisemitism and the Holocaust, walks us through essential questions to better understand the history and current forms of this intolerance. How is it the same as other prejudices? How is it unique? What is the difference between criticism of Israel and antisemitism? And, most importantly, why and how should we fight this prejudice?
