Antisemitism: From Its Origins to the Present:
January 16, 2020
6-8 pm at Temple Beth El
Light snack provided
Have you ever wondered where anti-Semitism comes from?
Have you ever wondered how anti-Semitism differs from other forms of hate?
Have you ever wondered how anti-Semitism has been used to service different societies over time in today’s world?
Understanding the greater context of anti-Semitism from the historical, cultural, psychological, and sociological context can help us determine the best response in our society today.
Caroline Connor, Amanda Devons and Jerilyn Rubin have taken a fascinating and timely online class called “Antisemitism: From Its Origins to the Present” created by Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Israel.
We invite you to join us and sign up for this free six week course through “Future Learn” at https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/antisemitism.. We think you will enjoy the wide variety of erudite teachers, videos and references. It’s truly enlightening.
We have had one lecture in November, but plan to repeat it on January 16, 2019 at the Temple from 6-8 pm. for those of you who could not attend. Please mark your calendars.
“About twenty five people attended; we had lots of lively discussion: Caroline made a compelling power point presentation; several visitors and non-temple members came with desire to learn more and support; one attendee had taken the entire future learn course which is three hours a week for six weeks. ….
We learned lots of world history that impacted the Jews and shaped antisemitism. We all wanted to learn more…” Amanda Devons
Please let the Temple know you are interested in the January 16, 2020 lecture, by either phone or e-mail, so we can get an idea how many people might be involved.
