Re-air: What Can We Learn from Dead Philosophers? with Eric Weiner (2709)
Is antisemitism still an issue in the U.S. and elsewhere?
Absolutely, say some key experts and students of the issue.
Ray Termini: a member of the AJC Dallas Regional Board of Directors, and Vice President of International Affairs., joined us for a brief conversation about the rising issues of antisemitism.
He’s just returned from an AJC delegation visit to Warsaw to celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of AJC’s Central Europe Office, which was opened in 2017 to promote democratic values and transatlantic relations, enhance ties between Central European countries and Israel, and combat antisemitism and extremism.
Last year, Holly Huffnagle: The American Jewish Committee’s, U.S. Director, for Combating Antisemitism and Sara Abosch Jacobson, Ph.D., Senior Director for Education in the Dallas Holocaust Museum were our guests on a McCuistion TV program on antisemitism.
Jews were the recipients of 60.2% of all anti-religious bias crimes in 2019, up from 56.9% in 2018. There has also been a 150% increase in antisemitism from 2013 to 2020.
