Contemporary Antisemitism: Is American Democracy at Risk?

This past summer in Charlottesville, neo-Nazis marched with torches chanting “Jews will not replace us.” Before the weekend was over, a woman, standing up for American values, was murdered and a community was deeply injured.  Is this America?

Join us for a dinner workshop as we explore democratic values through the lens of the state of antisemitism today. The workshop will raise questions and provide classroom usable texts to explore events that expose the continuing vitality of this 2,000 year-old hatred.  We will consider what it means for our country and discuss how to bring this topic to our classrooms.

After this workshop you will:

  • Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia

  • Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost

  • Get support for teaching lessons on antisemitism in your classroom

 

Dinner will be provided.

This workshop is made possible by a generous grant from the Seed The Dream Foundation.
