Melton Meets the Moment: Combating Antisemitism
Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning
The current rise in global antisemitism is startling. How can we feel safe in a world that is increasingly hostile to Judaism? And what should we be doing about it? In this session, we will do a deep dive into a very visible response we are seeing across American cities. In an attempt to bring the danger of antisemitism to the forefront of society’s consciousness, JewBelong launched a multi-media campaign to call it out as loudly as possible. You might have seen its bright pink ads and billboards with such eye-catching language as “Does your church need armed guards? ‘Cause our synagogue does. #EndJewHate” or “Being woke and antisemitic is like being a vegan who eats veal. #EndJewHate”. How did this campaign come to be? What is its goal? And what can we be doing to help?
Join JewBelong’s Co-founder Archie Gottesman to understand more deeply what JewBelong is doing to fight back against antisemitism.
