Antisemitism, Zionism, and Anti-Zionism (Part 1) with Dr. David Kaufman

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Antisemitism, Zionism, and Anti-Zionism are interconnected and symbiotic phenomena, both historically and in the present, and understanding their relationship is crucial for addressing challenges that may affect the Jewish future. The lecture series begins with “Antisemitism,” exploring the origins and dynamics of modern Jew-hatred; followed by “Zionism,” examining the interaction between Antisemitism and Jewish nationalism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; and concludes with “Anti-Zionism,” tracing the evolution of Zionism and its opposition over the past century.
