On-Site Program: Confronting Antisemitism – A Training for Parents & Caregivers

April 21, 2024 | 2:30pm CDT

9603 Woods Drive, Skokie, IL 60077

The recent rise of antisemitism in the United States has resulted in a 49% increase in antisemitic incidents in K-12 schools in 2022. Join us as we confront this alarming trend with an interactive workshop designed for parents and caregivers of school-age children from all backgrounds and levels of knowledge on the topic led by Ari Sagett, Museum Board Member and 3G descendant of Holocaust Survivors, and Doris Lazarus, 2G descendant of Holocaust Survivors.

Through videos, images, and discussions, workshop participants will learn about the diversity of Jewish identities, as well as historic and contemporary manifestations of antisemitism. The workshop will guide participants through self-reflection activities on identity and implicit vs. explicit bias; deconstructing antisemitic images that illustrate larger antisemitic tropes; and scenario-based problem-solving to recognize and respond to antisemitism in their communities. 

This program is part of the Museum’s “Understanding & Confronting Anti-Jewish Hate” community series.

Reservations required. Free to the public.

Community Partners: ADL Midwest; Evelyn R. Green AJC Chicago Regional Office; Sheerit Hapleitah

Supported by Carole Feiger, David P. Brody Charitable Trust, and the Wiznitzer Family.
