Contemporary antisemitic ideas and incidents often repackage antisemitic messages and tropes from history. However, young people are exposed to antisemitism in rapidly changing ways, both on school campuses and on unmonitored digital spaces like social media platforms and gaming sites. While students might recognize antisemitism when it makes headlines, how can we help young people identify and confront the subtler, but equally injurious, forms of antisemitism that they encounter in daily life? How can educators address the impacts these messages have on students and school communities? Join our panel conversation with classroom teachers as we unpack the challenges and opportunities of addressing antisemitism in classrooms.
