Courageous Conversations: Confronting Antisemitism

The recent rise of antisemitism in the United States has resulted in a 36% increase in antisemitic incidents throughout the United States, the highest number on record since the Anti-Defamation League began tracking antisemitic incidents in 1979.

Join Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center for an interactive workshop designed for participants from all backgrounds and levels of knowledge on the topic. Through videos, images, and discussions, participants will learn about the diversity of Jewish identities and the variety of forms antisemitism has taken, both historically and contemporary. The workshop guides participants through self-reflective activities on identity and implicit/explicit bias, deconstructs antisemitic images that illustrate larger antisemitic tropes, and engages participants in scenario-based problem-solving to recognize and respond to antisemitism in their communities.

Per the ADL’s 2022 report (Audit of Antisemitic Incidents 2022 | ADL):

  • 29% increase in antisemitic harassment
  • 51% increase in antisemitic vandalism
  • 26% increase in antisemitic assaults
  • 102% increase in white supremacist propaganda activity
  • 49% increase in antisemitic incidents in K-12 schools
  • 41% increase in antisemitic incidents on college campuses
