Understanding Antisemitism as a Form of Hate

Discussion with Kenneth S. Stern on Yom Kippur afternoon.

View Zoom program at Wise Center, Plum Street Temple or from home. What are the best ways to think about antisemitism and what to do about it? Is antisemitism just a matter of what people say and think about Jews? Is it unique, or a subset of the human capacity for hatred?

Kenneth S. Stern is the director of the Bard Center for the Study of Hate and an attorney and award-winning author. For twenty-five years, he was the American Jewish Committee’s expert on antisemitism, and he was also the lead drafter of the “Working Definition of Antisemitism.” He has argued before the Supreme Court of the United States and testified before Congress, and he is a frequent guest on television and radio. His work has appeared in The New York TimesThe Washington PostUSA Today, and The Forward. His newest book, The Conflict Over the Conflict: The Israel/Palestine Campus Debate (New Jewish Press, 2020), has been called a “must read,” “thoughtful and provocative,” a “gift,” a “rare and uncompromising testament to free expression” and a “blueprint for how to navigate the ‘conflict over the conflict’ on campus.”
