Tue / Feb 27 / 7:00 pm / 87th Street and Online
Take a closer look at the world’s oldest hatred, and examine the origins, development, and modern manifestations of antisemitism with Yair Rosenberg, a writer and scholar of antisemitism and the intersection of politics, culture, and religion.
Rosenberg is a staff writer at The Atlantic and writes the Deep Shtetl newsletter. Previously a senior writer at Tablet Magazine, he has also written for the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and The Guardian, and his work has received awards from the Religion Newswriters Association and the Harvard Center for Jewish Studies. He has testified in the U.S. Congress about antisemitism, and has covered everything from national elections in America and Israel, to observant Jews in baseball, to the translation of Harry Potter into Yiddish. In his spare time, he composes original Jewish music and creates bots that troll anti-Semites on Twitter. His latest projects include, "Antisemitism, Explained," a video series about anti-Jewish prejudice, and Az Yashir, an album of new shabbat music.
