Unpacking Antisemitism: An Action Based Workshop with Dara Horn

October 8, 2021

What’s Happening

Sunday, October 17, 6 pm, Zoom

Free, open to the community, pre-registration required at JewishVA.org/UnpackingAntisemitism

Join the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Jewish Community Relations Council and the Konikoff Center for Learning, along with the Old Dominion University Institute for Jewish Studies and Interfaith Understanding for Unpacking Antisemitism: An Action Based Workshop. This is the second in a series of programs geared toward not only learning how to identify antisemitism, but how to engage with it in a productive, nuanced manner.

Unpacking Antisemitism will shed light on how antisemitism has changed in recent years, and how to identify it in news, conversation, and pop culture. Bestselling author Dara Horn will share thought provoking instances of antisemitism from history and today…that often come across as benign without further examination. Through years of experience and research, Horn has become an expert in understanding how antisemitism comes up in many aspects of history.

In addition to Horn, speakers will represent organizations including the Anti-Defamation League, FBI, Robert Nusbaum Center at Virginia Wesleyan University, and Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities.

Though initially planned as a hybrid event with in-person and Zoom participation, the event will be completely virtual in order to respect the campus guidelines at ODU. Note the time change from afternoon to evening on Sunday, October 17.

Free and open to the community, to register, visit www.JewishVA.org/UnpackingAntisemitism. For more information about the workshop, contact Elka Mednick at emednick@ujft.org.
