Join Jewish teens and parents for a conversation with Dr. Rachel Fish, founding executive director of the Foundation to Combat Antisemitism. Together, we’ll learn about the conversations happening on college campuses throughout the country.

Dr. Fish leads the social media initiative [tbh]: Together Beat Hate. She was most recently senior advisor and resident scholar of Jewish/Israel philanthropy at the Paul E. Singer Foundation in New York City. She worked closely with grantees to support them and provided framing around their educational content and programming. Dr. Fish was also the executive director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University, where she helped train the next generation of academics in the field of Israel studies. She has taught at Brandeis University, Harvard University, UMass Amherst and in adult Jewish education programs. Dr. Fish completed her dissertation entitled, “Configurations of Bi-nationalism: The Transformation of Bi-nationalism and Palestine/Israel 1920s-Present,” on the history of bi-nationalism and alternative visions for constructing the State of Israel. She is co-editor, with Ilan Troen, of the book “Essential Israel: Essays for the Twenty-First Century.” Dr. Fish has written articles for several publications in the mainstream press and academic journals.

This program is part of a series of opportunities for Jewish teens to connect around current events and topics, powered by Temple Isaiah of Lexington in partnership with Jewish Teen Initiative at CJP.
