This overview will be based on the critically acclaimed book by Dara Horn, ""People Love Dead Jews," on anti-semitism in different historical eras. We read a novel by this author for One Book, One Congregation a few years ago. The series will build a foundation for addressing the threat of this moment in our state, with white nationalism on the rise, dangerously represented by several electoral candidates who have large followings.
As is her custom, Rabbi Julie will let us know her recommended reading from this book as we get closer to this series.
The book can be purchased online including audio, e-versions, hard copy and paperback copy, new and used. It should be available at your public library and can be bought at local bookstores near you. Please consider supporting Philadelphia's independent, local bookstores such as Harriet's Bookshop or A Novel Idea.
There will be 3 sessions in this series, and you can attend any of then without having attended a previous one. The other sessions will be held on November 20 and December 13 at the same time.
Leyv Ha-Ir members will be automatically sent the Zoom link for these. Guests are welcome and can register here to be sent the Zoom information. There is no charge for this program, although guests are encouraged to make a donation of $18.
