Anti-Semitism – What It Is, What It Isn’t

Partners for Progressive Israel invites you to join us on Thursday, December 3 at 12:30 pm Eastern Time for a wide-ranging conversation on anti-Semitism. Our panelists will be Rabbi Jill Jacobs, the Executive Director of T’ruah, and Kenneth Stern, director of the Bard Center for the Study of Hate and the lead drafter of the “Working Definition of Antisemitism,” later adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). This definition has been embraced by the Trump administration, sparking concern that it would be exploited to suppress free speech about Israel.

Not that long ago, it seems, Americans held a generally common understanding of the scourge of anti-Semitism – what that term encompasses, and what it doesn’t. But that has changed. Over the last few years, the use of the anti-Semitism label has become increasingly politicized, even weaponized, particularly in the context of Israel and Zionism. Our expert panelists will share their insights and engage with the Zoom audience via Q&A.

Please join us for this important and timely event, which is being co-sponsored by T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights.
