Jewish Responses to Antisemitism from Rabbinic Times to Modern France.

, Virtual Meeting Room

Updated 2/12

Please join the American University Center for Israel Studies and Jewish Studies Program for the first event of the spring semester in our ongoing 2020-21 Antisemitism Series, with French Rabbi Delphine Horvilleur.

In her new book, Anti-Semitism RevisitedHow the Rabbis Made Sense of Hatred, French Rabbi Delphine Horvilleur explores how the hatred of Jews is seen through the lens of the sacred texts, rabbinical tradition and Jewish lore. She will discuss both traditional and modern Jewish responses to antisemitism, including its latest manifestations in today's France. Moderated by AU Professor Michael Brenner.
