Spotlight on Contemporary Antisemitism

May 2, 2019
Location: Dell Jewish Community 7300 Hart Ln. Austin, Texas 78731
Time: 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

This program introduces educators to classroom material to address contemporary manifestations of antisemitism and its relationship to traditional forms of antisemitism present before and during the Holocaust. We’ll explore ways to support students’ commitment and ability to actively respond to and prevent antisemitism and other forms of prejudice in their communities.  Participants in this program will also gain access to a range of classroom content and consider instructional enhancements to support students' study and reflection of the history of the Holocaust and its ongoing meaning in the world today. Educators enhance their own knowledge about the Holocaust, including the history of antisemitism, and build confidence and capacity to teach this complex subject.
