CMI Education Task Force series on Antisemitism
November 12 – 7:00 p.m.
The CMI Education Task Force will present an interactive series on antisemitism. The next session will consider topics explored in the recent book, Antisemitism Here and Now by Deborah Lipstadt, moderated by ADL spokesperson Marji Shapiro and members of the task force. Participants are strongly encouraged to read the book by Lipstadt, since it will provide a common set of themes and ideas for discussion. This program is intended to offer an open and safe forum to consider both the history and current manifestations of antisemitism, with opportunities for participants to raise questions that arise from the readings and discussions. We will consider not only the negative impact of antisemitism but also the reasons to be thankful that we are Jews: elements of both Oy and Joy!Mark your calendars for this highly relevant and constructive series: Tuesday evenings November 12 and December 10. All sessions will take place at 7:00 p.m. at CMI.
