Defamation: Anti-Semitism the Movie

Tuesday, April 29, 7:00pm

 

How does anti-semitism, and our relationship to it, affect our lives as Jews today?  How does it affect Israel and its place in the international community?  What about the Holocaust?  This movie is extraordinary in the access it offers to people on all sides of the political and cultural debates, and surprising in the lighthearted tone it uses to tell the story of Anti-Semitism today.  The film follows Israeli teens on a trip to Poland, travels with Abe Foxman, director of the ADL, and talks with critical scholars like John Mearsheimer and Norman Finkelstein. As part of our commemoration of Yom Hashoah, Holocaust Memorial Day, we will think about the role that Anti-Semitism continues to play in our Jewish identities and communal lives.

Watch a preview of the film
