“The recent events at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, Texas remind us that antisemitism has reached frightening levels,” the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles reports. To discuss the issue and how to go from here, the Federation organizes an online discussion on February 14, 2022.
The online event titled “From the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Strasbourg, 1349 to Colleyville, Texas: Grappling with Antisemitism and Where We Go From Here” will be moderated by Landecker Fellow Maia Ferdman.
Elisha Wiesel – advocate for opportunity, student of Jewish Continuity, and son of Marion and Elie Wiesel, Rabbi Susan Goldberg – founder of Nefesh, and Rabbi Noah Farkas – President & CEO of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles will also join the discussion.
