Unpacking Antisemitism: An action-based workshop

by | Sep 2, 2021 | What’s Happening

Sunday, October 17, 1 pm

In partnership with Old Dominion University’s Institute for Jewish Studies & Interfaith Understanding, the Jewish Community Relations Council is hosting an afternoon workshop to learn strategies to fight the rising tide of antisemitism.

Keynote speaker Dara Horn will discuss her new book, People Love Dead Jews, a startling exploration of how Jewish history is exploited to flatter and comfort the living. Additional speakers and workshop facilitators represent organizations that include the Anti-Defamation League, FBI, Robert Nusbaum Center at Virginia Wesleyan University, and Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities.

The workshop will leave participants with a better understanding of the history of antisemitism, and concrete methods to address it.

This free and open to the community workshop offers in-person and online participation, with registration required for both. Participants will receive supplementary information and a take-home “toolkit” for use after the event.
