The Jewish Theological Seminary Anti-Hate Talk with Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt
Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)
The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) will host “It Could Happen Here” – a virtual conversation between Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of ADL, and JTS Chancellor Shuly Rubin Schwartz that will examine the rising threat of hate and antisemitism in America.
As CEO of ADL, Jonathan Greenblatt has made it his personal mission to demonstrate how antisemitism, racism, and other insidious forms of intolerance can destroy a society, taking root as quiet prejudices but mutating over time into horrific acts of brutality. In 2022, Greenblatt released It Could Happen Here, a book that sounds an alarm, warning that hate and systemic violence is gathering momentum in the United States–-and that violence on a more catastrophic scale could be just around the corner.
Greenblatt will offer strategies on how we, as individuals, as organizations, and as a society, can strike back against hate, drawing on ADL’s decades of experience in fighting hate through investigative research, education programs, and legislative victories as well as his own personal story and his background in business and government.
