Mar 06 2024 11:00 am Roma, Jews, and the Holocaust with Ari Joskowicz

Jews and Roma died side by side in the Holocaust, yet the world did not recognize their destruction equally. In the years and decades following the war, the Jewish experience of genocide increasingly occupied the attention of legal experts, scholars, educators, and politicians, while the genocide of Europe’s Roma went largely ignored. How do we rewrite Holocaust history in light of our understanding that Nazi genocidal practices against Jews and Roma were deeply interconnected? And how should we view Romani and Jews’ survivors’ parallel but unequal struggles for historical justice in the postwar period?

Mar 07 2024 10:00 am Antisemitism on Social Media since 7 October with Dr Matthew Bolton and Jacob Turner

The events of 7 October, the deadliest attack on Jews since the Holocaust, along with the subsequent Israeli response in Gaza, mark a pivotal moment in the Arab-Israeli conflict and Jewish life worldwide. They have sparked extensive media and public response and fervent reactions from all sides. Social media has been central to the way this response has played out over the past months – fierce debates have been joined by denial, distortion and the harassment and abuse of Jewish and Israeli social media users. What patterns can be found in the online responses to the Hamas attacks and the subsequent war?

Mar 11 2024 4:00 pm Unmasking Jewish Conspiracy Theories: How Anti-Semitism Emerges from the Campus to the Public Sphere with Scott Shay

Investigate how conspiracy theories originating in academic environments, particularly from far-right and far-left ideologies, find their way into mainstream culture, impacting business, entertainment, and social discourse. Scott A. Shay, Chai Mitzvah’s Board President, is a businessman, thought leader and author of three books. Scott’s most recent book, Conspiracy U: A Case Study (Wicked Son, 2021), challenges the proliferation of anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist conspiracy theories championed on college campuses from the far-right and far-left. His second book, In Good Faith: Questioning Religion and Atheism (Post Hill Press, 2018), explores the most common critiques of monotheism and incorporates Jewish, Christian, and Muslim voices. His first book, Getting Our Groove Back: How to Energize American Jewry (Devora, 2007), focuses on the core issues facing American Jews. Scott has been a long time Jewish activist and has served on the boards of local, national, and international Jewish organizations. Scott has been very active on college campuses and high schools, educating students and alumni about the impact of Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories. He is taking his message into the business world as well.
