Anti-Semitism in the Region and What is Being Done About It

Anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise, up 57% in 2017 from 2016, the largest single year jump on record, according to the Anti-Defamation League. This feels like a crisis, something to head off, especially when the rise of anti-Semitism is combined with hate crimes against Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics and immigrants.

Please join us as Michael D. Cohen, Eastern Director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, addresses this topic and what is being done about it. The Simon Wiesenthal Center is a global human rights organization using the lessons of the Holocaust to confront anti-Semitism, hate and terrorism, training tens of thousands on prejudices, diversity and tolerance issues and supporting the State of israel.

This event is open to the public and admission is free. We ask that you please register in advance by February 21, by calling the Temple Israel Office at (516) 239-1140, or by emailing alan.freedman@tilny.org.

This event is sponsored by the Judy and Ben Segan Adult Education Fund.
