ADL Webinar: Special update on antisemitism for clergy and synagogue staff
Over the past year, we have seen a dismaying torrent of antisemitism – at synagogues from coast to coast, in the streets of our communities, and online. We have seen both the continuation of long-standing types of antisemitism as well as new forms, such as anti-Jewish conspiracies around the coronavirus. Clergy and synagogue staff are often on the front lines in dealing with antisemitism. As leaders of the Jewish community, you have people turning to you for guidance in how to respond. And because of your visibility in the community, you may be confronting antisemitic incidents directly.
We are pleased to extend an invitation from ADL (Anti-Defamation League) to participate in a special update on antisemitism today that is just for clergy and synagogue staff. ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt, along with a team of experts from the Center on Extremism, will share important new data and insights on antisemitic incidents and antisemitism at this moment in history.
Date: Wednesday, May 13, 2020
Time: 3:00 – 4:00pm Eastern Time
Registration link: https://adl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fGibKTeSQMKdNsSG9rdFog
We encourage you to join ADL and other synagogue professionals from across the country for a very timely discussion of the surge in antisemitism and how communities responded to their direct encounters with hate.
