Antisemitism, Intolerance, and Nationalism: Reflecting on the Tree of Life Synagogue Attack and Pushing Back Against Hate
The mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27, 2018 marks one of the most devastating attacks on the Jewish community in the United States, claiming eleven lives.
Please join us as a panel of BCC faculty will lead us in a discussion on the history of these kinds of attacks and their impact on all communities. We will discuss:
- What are the connections between antisemitism and attacks on other religious communities?
- Who are the "white nationalists"? What is “white nationalism”?
- Where can we go from here? What other conversations do we need to have here at BCC?
