Contemporary antisemitic ideas and incidents often repackage antisemitic messages and tropes from history. However, young people are exposed to antisemitism in rapidly changing ways, both on school campuses and on unmonitored digital spaces like social media platforms and gaming sites. While students might recognize antisemitism when it makes headlines, how can we help young people identify and confront the subtler, but equally injurious, forms of antisemitism that they encounter in daily life? How can educators address the impacts these messages have on students and school communities? Join our panel conversation with classroom teachers as we unpack the challenges and opportunities of addressing antisemitism in classrooms.

During the webinar, we will:

  • Understand contemporary ways young people are exposed to antisemitic ideas
  • Provide strategies and materials to aid students in identifying antisemitism in its contemporary forms
  • Provide teachers with methods that empower students to respond to antisemitism
  • Explore steps educators can take to create safe and inclusive classrooms

You will be eligible to receive one hour of professional development credit for participation if you actively watch the webinar. At the conclusion of the webinar, you will be able to download a certificate of completion from the webinar console. Check with your school district in advance of the webinar to ensure that the professional development credit is accepted.
