Confronting Antisemitism: Empowering Our Students & Ourselves

 

Antisemitism is on the rise around the world, and Jewish tweens and teens are very aware of this troubling trend. Educators can help address the impact on their students’ personal lives and on their identities as Jews in the modern world.

This series aims to equip educators with the knowledge, tools, and skills needed to address rising antisemitism with their students.

Participants will learn and workshop classroom strategies for:

  • Understanding, coping with, and responding to antisemitism
  • Dealing with subtle antisemitism and with traumatic events
  • Building student and communal resilience
  • Empowering students
