Join us for an exploration of “Anti-Semitism Today,” a workshop with Rabbi Mordechai Liebling, Sunday, April 28 at 3-6 pm.  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.  Please let us know you are coming via Sign-up Genius.

He previously served as the Executive Vice-President of Jewish Funds for Justice, the Torah of Money Director of the Shefa Fund, and the Executive Director of the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation. He is on the boards of the Faith and Politics Institute and the Shalom Center. He and his life-partner Lynne facilitate ”Awakening The Dreamer,” Changing the Dream symposiums.
