Deconstructing (and Addressing) Anti-Semitism
- Type: Program / Activity
- Topics: Cornerstone
Anti-semitism is a cyclically operating oppression that has plagued the Jewish diaspora for millennia. While it has never gone away, we are currently living amidst a particularly public flare-up of anti-semitic sentiment both in North America and abroad. Most of us do not know how to talk about it or how best to respond. In this session, we will explore what anti-semitism looks like and how it works so participants feel equipped to recognize and speak about anti-semitism in a responsive but non-reactionary way – both at camp and beyond – in order to help create positive change for Jewish communities and the diaspora at large.
