21st Century Anti-Semitism: Exploring Hate, Oppression and Identity

Tuesday, April 6 | 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Virtual Event

Join WashU Hillel on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm CST for a conversation on identifying and combatting anti-Semitism in all its forms. This program will consist of roughly an hour of panel conversation followed by half an hour of breakout-room learning on various topics moderated by the panelists. 

This event aims to jumpstart the creation of a community of students, both Jewish and non-Jewish, who are passionate about building relationships across cultural lines, fighting anti-Semitism, and discovering new allies in the fight against hate. No prior knowledge is needed to leave with a working definition of anti-Semitism, how to identify it, and how to address it, in addition to how anti-Semitism interacts with other types of oppression and hate. We will address topics such as anti-Semitism on social media and in the classroom, the intersections of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, and the role that white supremacy plays in anti-Semitism.

Program underwritten by WashU Hillel’s Harry and Mary Neuman Endowment Fund and The George Roffman Memorial Fund.
