An Equity Workshop for Educators and Parents Unpacking Antisemitism and AntiZionism in our Schools and Campuses
This is a full day, educational seminar, which will help to examine Antisemitism and AntiZionism and how they intersect. During these workshops, educators will explore the Jewish connection to the land, and the Jewish people’s indigeneity in that land, by looking at the history of as well as the creation of the modern state of Israel.
Teachers will better understand some of the current trends happening within the school systems and will also gain a better perspective on how to confront false accusations regarding the Modern State of Israel.
