One in four American Jews experienced antisemitism in the past year.* In person and online antisemitic remarks, false claims of Jews fomenting a “replacement theory” in America, and acts of violence against Jews are on the rise in the United States.
Antisemitism is not a new problem. To better understand the roots and causes of antisemitism and become better allies, explore the history and context of past and present manifestations of antisemitism in a three-session series at Hillel that will cover:
- What is Judaism? Who are Jews?
- History of Antisemitism
- Antisemitism Today
This series is not an academic course, and there is no homework.
Since your time is valuable, a vegetarian dinner will be provided each session, and all students who attend and actively participate in all three sessions will receive a $75 stipend.
Sessions meet from 5:30-7:00 pm at Hillel UW (4745 17th Ave NE) on Tuesdays, November 1, November 8, & November 15.
All UW undergraduates are welcome. No Jewish background or experience with Hillel are necessary.
