History of Antisemitism

Brith Shalom Adult Education
History of Antisemitism
Cantor Mark Levine

The tenacity of Antisemitic ideology and behavior has shaped much of Jewish history over the last 2,300 years.  The Crusades, the Inquisition, expulsions, ghettos, the Dreyfus Affair, pogroms, quotas, and the vast array of Jew hatred in our world today, simmering below the surface and/or manifested in terrorist behavior…seemingly endless.  These events have shaped who we are and serve as cautionary tales as we move forward into the 21st century.
