Rabbi Hirsch In Discussion About Antisemitism

Hosted By: Stephen Wise Free Synagogue

“If there is one lesson to absorb from the Holocaust, it is that when someone proclaims an intention to exterminate the Jews, believe them,” said our Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch on Rosh Hashanah as he recalled a harrowing story from the Holocaust. “The ideology of antisemitism focuses not on the Jewish person, but on the Jewish people; this is why it is so dangerous.

The Antisemitism Task Force invites you to join Rabbi Hirsch in person or on Zoom for a discussion and talk back of his sermon on antisemitism and anti-Zionism. Followed by a Q&A.
