A Brief History of Antisemitism with Rabbi Stuart Altshuler

Thursday, May 20, at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom

In this session, we will explore how Jew hatred has evolved from its ancient roots to the modern period exploring its ethnic, religious, racial and today’s anti-Zionist components. While each era has revealed different ideological premises for antisemitism, we will try to discover the common thread that existed in each era of history.

Why has our people been so disliked throughout history? Why has antisemitism, of all the “hatreds” that have existed since the beginning of history, been unique? Why has antisemitism been the most virulent and longest hatred in the history of humanity?

What is the state of antisemitism today? How do today’s strains of antisemitism differ from those which existed before the Shoah? Finally, how can Jews today best defend themselves against antisemitism? Is there anything we can do about it?

Rabbi Stuart Altshuler will be joining us in July as Temple Beth Sholom's new Rabbi.
