Confronting Antisemitism: Brave Classrooms
Join us from 4:30-6pm for this interactive workshop to explore ways to combat and resist contemporary manifestations of antisemitism. As educators we will discuss strategies to teach about common antisemitic stereotypes so that our students are better equipped to recognize and reject the antisemitism they may see online, in print, and in their communities. We will explore the questions: What is antisemitism, and how has it impacted Jews and non-Jews alike in the past and today? What are the consequences for a Democracy when a “single story” is used to exclude a group of people? This workshop will feature teaching lessons and resources that will help you make connections between traditional and contemporary antisemitism, and examine the shifting representations of this hateful ideology.
Dinner will be provided after the workshop from 6:00 to 7:00 and all attendees are encouraged to stay for the Confronting Antisemitism: Communities Standing Up, Together Community Event starting at 7:00.
This workshop is intended for middle and high school educators. CTLE hours are available for attendance at the workshop as well as the Community Event.
