Defend Your Jewish Heritage and Combat Antisemitism!
Four workshops, two expert education panels, and one conference – All geared toward empowerment!

We are painfully aware of the increase in local and national Antisemitic dangers. This fall and winter, Congregation Beth Jacob is sponsoring programs to empower both Adults and Teens. More than just an alarm bell ringing, these programs provide context, pragmatic tools, and strategies for facing the ugly reality of antisemitism in its various insidious forms.

Teen Program 2- Jewish Pride and Israel – Anti Zionism and Anti Semitism

The world’s attention on Israel and their internal policies has become mixed with antisemitism.  In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn about the history of antisemitism and how anti-Zionism is being used today to delegitimize Israel and the Jewish people, and why it’s important to separate Israel’s right to exist from the current discussions of Israel’s politics.  They are not the same.
