The Antisemitism Eruption: What It Means

Sunday, December 3, 2023
10:00 AM EST -11:30 AM EST

Virtual Event

Cost: Free


Gefsky Community Scholar Rabbi Danny Schiff

How should we understand the various antisemitic expressions that are now on full display?

The Gefsky Community Scholar position is endowed by the H. Arnold and Adrien B. Gefsky Endowment Fund of the Federation’s Jewish Community Foundation.

There can be little doubt that we are witnessing the worst eruption of antisemitism since the 1940s. Why is this happening? How should we understand the various antisemitic expressions that are now on full display? And, most importantly, what does the surfacing of all this antisemitism mean for the well-being of Jews in America, Israel, Europe, and beyond? In this special session, Gefsky Community Scholar Rabbi Danny Schiff will address the biggest antisemitism escalation of our lifetimes, and its implications for the future.

Classes are generously supported by the Elaine Belle Krasik Fund for Adult Education.
