Two Centuries of Antisemitism

Hosted By: Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

The flames of antisemitism have once again been stoked, reigniting from the embers of the past. In this 5-week course, explore this age-old hatred. Discover how 19th century self-professed anti-Semites emboldened and morphed Jew hatred into the modern phenomenon. From there, unpack the evolution of antisemitism in the 20th and 21st centuries and how it affects the contemporary Jewish experience. Explore how the past is particularly relevant in light of the COVID pandemic and the continuous conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
