Wondering Jews: The Mainstreaming of Antisemitism in America with Bob Horenstein

Wednesday, January 31, 2024 21 Shevat 5784

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

One survey of American adults revealed that over one-third did not know what antisemitism is, and one out of six said they had never heard of the word. This at a time when we are seeing an alarming rise in antisemitic incidents and hate crimes in the U.S. This presentation will explore what antisemitism is (and what it is not) from both the far right and far left, how it has evolved over time, and how it is being normalized in America. It will also delve into the reasons why antisemitism is often overlooked or even dismissed by those working in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
