Antisemitism & Other Hatreds: Populism, Anti-Globalism, and Polarization

"Antisemitism cannot be seen apart from other hatreds that span the globe. How are we to understand what it has in common with other prevalent hatreds of the 21st century and where it differs?"

Join us on Sunday, July 12th at 7:00pm Central as Dr. Michael Berenbaum shares with us some insights into this dark park of humanity.

There is so much anger, frustration, and hatred in the world today. Among the many issues in current events is a rise in Anti-semitism in the United States and around the world. While this type of hatred is not new, it is never easy to deal with, and often even harder to understand.

Dr. Berenbaum will take us on a journey of looking at antisemitism of the 21st century and connecting it with current events. Only through understanding hatred can we learn to control and combat it.
