Pride and Prejudice: Jewish Education's Battle Amid Growing Anti-Semitism


Jewish Futures 2019- Pride and Prejudice

Pittsburgh. Poway. Jewish Americans – and educators –still grapple with difficult questions in the aftermath of these shocking, fatal attacks…

How do climates of fear and hate affect our learners' identity formation?

How much should educators acknowledge acts of terror and anti-Semitism, versus shielding children from harsh realities?

How do we teach about these attacks when Jewish teens are divided on whether these attacks were anti-Semitic, another episode of gun violence, or parallel to oppression that other communities face?

Join The Jewish Education Project for an exploration of how our community can encourage the development of proud, thriving Jews—and how our orientation must shift in a climate of heightened anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence.
