Confronting Anti-Semitism

Confronting Anti-Semitism is an interactive education program for youth and adult family members designed to empower and equip the Jewish community with constructive and effective responses to anti-Semitic incidents and the persistent anti-Semitic stereotypes that are often at the root of such incidents.  Confronting Anti-Semitism workshops are most typically provided to the following groups:

  • Middle school students attending Bat/Bar Mitzvah classes at their synagogues*
  • Middle or high school students attending Jewish Day Schools*
  • College-bound high school seniors*
  • Jewish students attending colleges or universities

*May include parents

The Confronting Anti-Semitism workshop helps Jewish youth, family members, teachers and community members to address the changing face of anti-Semitism by:

  • Increasing their understanding and awareness of anti-Semitism in their lives
  • Providing opportunities to explore and strengthen their Jewish identity
  • Countering anti-Semitic stereotypes and myths with accurate information
  • Providing skills to respond effectively and constructively to the variety of ways anti-Semitism manifests itself, from insensitive or biased comments to hate-motivated incidents
