Understanding Anti-Semitism in a Global Climate of Extremism at CJH

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

Monday, December 18
7 pm
Understanding Anti-Semitism in a Global Climate of Extremism
Presented by American Sephardi Federation
Panel Discussion
This panel – featuring Richard Sassoon and Ahmed Flex-Omar – will critically address the history, evolution, and dramatic growth of Anti-Semitism in the ideologies of violent Muslim extremist groups. Specifically, we will examine the ways in which historical perspective and recognition both accentuates the importance of confronting prejudice of all kinds, and encourages early intervention where bigotry threatens the safety, or well-being of any community.
Tickets: $5, reservation required
