Response to Anti-Semitism: Community Event
From a barrage of bomb threats made against Jewish community centers to a swastika scrawled on a bathroom wall at Schreiber High School, from a social media post depicting a local Jewish politician as a character from “Fiddler on the Roof” to a Disney-sponsored You Tuber streaming “Death to all Jews” to our children’s phones, rising anti-Semitism is no longer just a worldwide problem, it’s a local one.
Please join our expert panel for an analysis of the current situation and a discussion of solutions to combat anti-Semitism.
Rep. Tom Suozzi, U.S. House of Representatives (D-NY);
Etzion Neuer, Director of Community Services, Anti-Defamation League New York;
Thomas Krumpter, Acting Commissioner, Nassau County Police Department;
Karen Sloan, President of the Board of Education, Port Washington Union Free School District
Jodie Siff, Rabbi at the Reconstructionist Synagogue of the North Shore
During the discussion, children in K–6th grades are also invited to participate in a simultaneous program that will focus on acceptance and diversity.
Co-sponsored by Chevrat Tefillah, Community Synagogue, Port Jewish Center, Reconstructionist Synagogue of the North Shore, Sid Jacobson JCC, Temple Beth Israel, Temple Judea of Manhasset and Temple Sinai of Roslyn.
