  • SPOTLIGHT ON CONTEMPORARY ANTISEMITISM

    The Brighton Teacher Center is hosting a session on contemporary antisemitism facilitated by Echoes & Reflections, an organization dedicated to "reshaping the way that teachers and students understand, process, and navigate the world through the events of the Holocaust. The Holocaust is more than a historical event; it’s part of the larger human story. Educating students about its significance is a great responsibility. We partner with educators to help them introduce students to the complex themes of the Holocaust and to understand its lasting effect on the world Antisemitism is not a relic of the past, but a hatred the world struggles with today".

     WHY ATTEND THIS PROGRAM?
    How do we help students understand that antisemitism did not begin nor end with the Holocaust? What do students need to know in order to recognize antisemitism today and to stand up to antisemitism and other forms of hate? This learning opportunity explores classroom materials to support effective teaching of contemporary antisemitism, it  global reach, and its expression in the form of hate speech, violence, denial, and distortion of the Holocaust, and anti-Israel rhetoric.

    PROGRAM GOALS

    1. Through this program, educators will:
      Define contemporary manifestations of antisemitism,
      both different and the same as traditional forms
      of antisemitism present before and during
      the Holocaust;
    2. Discover and utilize classroom lessons and resources
      to help students explore the persistence and impact
      of antisemitism worldwide;
    3. Explore ways to support students’ commitment
      and ability to actively respond to and prevent
      antisemitism and other forms of prejudice, and
    4. Build confidence and capacity to teach
      this subject.
