Anti-Semitism in the Region

February 28 , 7:00 pm

Michael D. Cohen, Eastern Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, will discuss “Anti-Semitism in the Region and What is Being Done About It.”

Why is this topic so important now – anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise, up 57% in 2017 from 2016, the largest single year jump on record, according to the Anti-Defamation League. This increase came on top of hate crimes against Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics and immigrants, and it feels like a crisis. What is being done about it?

Free and open to the community.
