Understanding and Responding to Antisemitism

Sunday, January 21 – Noon to 12:45 p.m. with Meri Weiss in Parish Hall

Registration Required – Childcare available – Zoom option available

Here is probably no timelier topic than the current state of antisemitism in our country. As we try to navigate through the world of misinformation and polarization, we will explore what it’s like for Jewish children and adults to go about their daily lives debunking myths and often concealing their religious identity from their peers. As an educator of Jewish children, Meri Weiss has tales to tell. And through frank discussions with her, we can learn what role non-Jews can play in changing this rising tide.

Meri Weiss is an academic who has spent two decades teaching Jewish culture and traditions to people of all ages in the Jewish and the wider community. Alongside teaching in area Hebrew Schools, she is a cantorial soloist, Holocaust educator, and directs Jewish community programming. Meri is also a Girl Scout Leader, an environmental activist, and a board member of The Brandywiners Ltd. She is passionate about seeking and sharing knowledge. Please register at this link.
