Is America Different? Antisemitism in the U.S. in Historical Perspective
Hosted By: Haberman Institute
Presented by Jonathan Sarna
Recently, we have witnessed an unexpected spike in antisemitic activities in the United States, including two deadly attacks on synagogues. Is this a new phenomenon? What role has antisemitism actually played in American history? Is it a pervasive phenomenon, a late and alien phenomenon, or something in between? This lecture will trace the course of antisemitism in the United States and consider the question of American exceptionalism. Has America been different from Europe with respect to antisemitism. How worried should we be about the spread of the world’s oldest hatred to America’s shores?
