Responding to Hatred
Responding to Hatred is a presentation that aims to address the issue of antisemitism and culminates with an empowering suggestion of how we might effectively respond to antisemitism we come across in our own lives. This presentation is broken into three sections; identifying classical manifestations of antisemitism (both religious and racial conceptions), antisemitism that is related to Israel, and effective tools for responding to antisemitism.
