In this workshop, we will examine an overview of the history of antisemitism, learning its cyclical nature, see how it functions in society, and its role in the ideology of white nationalism today. We will also explore internalized antisemitism. The relationship between antisemitism and racism will be discussed, as will the relationship between antisemitism and criticism of Israel. The workshop will be experiential, as well as didactic. We will have a break during the workshop. RSVP to Judy Katz, judy.katz3@verizon.net.
