The Persistence of Hate: Exploring Contemporary Antisemitism

How and why does antisemitism persist in communities today? What can we do as educators, neighbors, and religious institutions to confront hatred in our schools and communities? Facing History’s new lessons explore the role that antisemitism played at the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as a case study in contemporary antisemitism. The lessons provide strategies and resources for discussing controversial issues with students that are especially urgent at this historical moment. They also provide a lens through which we can construct effective ways of responding to such issues within the Jewish community in particular.

In this workshop, you will:
 

  • Explore the lesson series,The Persistence of Hate: What the 2017 Unite the Right rally Revealed about Contemporary Antisemitism, which investigates the August 2017 events in Charlottesville as a case study in contemporary antisemitism

  • Examine American antisemitism in an historical context by exploring primary sources from the twentieth century

  • Discuss community responses to these events and how students can choose to participate in strengthening their communities when faced with violations based on hatred or bigotry

 

After this workshop, you will:
 

  • Receive coaching and support as you implement the lessons in your classroom

  • Become part of the Facing History Educator Network, with access to educator resources, including units and lesson plans, study guides, and books & DVDs accessible through our free online lending library

Light Kosher dinner will be served.
