About This Collection

Jews and the Jewish community have long been characterized as outsiders and targets of hate. Centuries before racialized antisemitism (hatred of Jews because of “who they are” as people) emerged, the Jewish community was often ostracized, denigrated, and persecuted for theological and ideological reasons. Explore the origins and history of this prejudice and discrimination against Jews that is over a millenia old.

Facing History & Ourselves is designed for educators who want to help students explore identity, think critically, grow emotionally, act ethically, and participate in civic life. It’s hard work, so we’ve developed some go-to professional learning opportunities to help you along the way.
