Antisemitism and Mideast Governments Today

August 6, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Event Category:
Sinai Temple

Join Rabbi Nicole Guzik in discussion with David Weinberg, Washington Director for International Affairs, Anti-Defamation League, as they discuss the current trends of Antisemitism in Middle Eastern governments and recommendations for constructive action. Many governments in the Middle East today enable or even propagate antisemitic incitement against Israel and the Jewish people. In many instances, this incitement takes the form of slanderous conspiracy theories in state-published textbooks, at state-sponsored book fairs, in state-controlled media outlets, or by state-sponsored hate preachers.

David Weinberg will share with us a survey of some of the latest trends in this regard, using Arabic- and Persian-language materials from Iran and the Arab world that the organization has been exposing. He will also share with us some examples of other, more positive trends from the region, as well as several recommendations for constructive action.
