After Shabbat Services
Anti-Semitism: From the Left and Right

Join Rabbi Spilker for an open, facilitated conversation about anti-Semitism today.

Apart from overt anti-Semitic acts, politicians and others have been using phrases that reflect anti-Semitic “tropes”. Are these words truly anti-Semitic? Regardless, how have these words and the reporting of these statements affected you? What is the relationship between anti-Israel statements vs. anti-Zionism statements vs. anti-Semitic statements?

It takes time to talk through complicated and nuanced truths. Please join for a respectful and open conversation this Shabbat.
