Navigating Our Intersectionality: A Conversation with the ADL about anti-Racism, anti-Semitism, and Israel

Thursday, January 28, 2021 15 Sh'vat 5781

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMZoom

Nearly a year ago, the global pandemic changed everything. The isolation, grief, and financial hardships due to Covid-19 have forever changed the social fabric of our country. We have seen increased hate and injustice, including a rise in anti-Semitism and racism. For many American Jews, this is a moment of challenge, raising the question of how they can best be both supporters of the Black Lives Matter Movement and the state of Israel.

Join Eileen Hershenov, the Senior Vice-President of Policy at the Anti-Defamation League, and Aryeh Tuchman, the Associate Director of ADL's Center on Extremism, as they lead us in learning and in discussion about the relationship between Judaism, anti-Semitism, Zionism, intersectionality, and racism in America. Together, we will raise these topics with respect and civility and engage with experts in an open-minded exploration.

We are pleased to offer this event free of charge. We gratefully accept any donations to support our future adult programming. A donation of any amount will help everyone in our community to access important learning opportunities like this event.  As a show of gratitude, and with your permission, we will list all donors as sponsors on our adult program materials.  

As Senior Vice President, Policy, Eileen Hershenov oversees ADL’s civil rights team, its government relations and community engagement team, the Silicon Valley-based Center for Technology and Society, the Civil Society Fellowship, and the library and archives work. Eileen joined ADL in 2018 after serving as General Counsel (GC) for several of the nation’s leading mission-driven not-for-profits.
