(Courtesy of Cong. Anshe Sholom) Congregation Anshe Sholom’s sisterhood invites the community to hear Dr. Alex Joffe speak on the topic “Anti-Semitism in 2018. Where Are We?” on Sunday, November 11, at 2:30 p.m.
Dr. Joffe is an archaeologist and historian. A fellow at the Middle East Forum and senior non-resident researcher at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar Ilan University, he has published widely on the Arab-Israeli conflict and global anti-Semitism, including the BDS movement.
Joffe will present information about how the “intersectional” alliances between the progressive far left and minority communities have moved to a new style of anti-Semitism, which targets Israel and its supporters, from campuses to mainstream Western political parties. Acknowledging the resurgence of neo-Nazis in the U.S. and Europe, he will provide insight as to what drives these movements and what the future holds for Jews and Israel.
