Confronting Antisemitism: Empowering Our Students & Ourselves
Antisemitism is on the rise around the world, from graffiti, hate speech, and social media attacks, to more violent crimes including physical assault and worse. Jewish tweens and teens are very aware of this growing hate and need proper support to help address the psychological and emotional impact on their 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:
- Understanding, identifying, and responding to antisemitism
- Employing varied coping mechanisms for dealing with traumatic events
- Building student and communal resilience
- Empowering their students and themselves
