Roots of Antisemitism and Its Contemporary Resurgence

Hosted By: American Jewish University

From medieval accusations that Jews murder Christians for their blood to the modern-day conspiracy theories animating present-day political discourse, it’s clear that the belief that Jews are plotting against society never dies—it just adapts to suit the times. Join the editor and contributors of Looking for an Enemy: 8 Essays on Antisemitism and AJU’s President Dr. Jeffrey Herbst for a nuanced, global understanding of antisemitism across ages, political ideologies, and nationalities. In their essays, American rabbi Jill Jacobs explores the thorny question of antisemitism in politics, journalist Natasha Lehrer explores the culture of antisemitism in France and the forces behind it, and Jo Glanville searches for the historical roots of this dangerous hatred.
