Pride and Prejudice: Jewish Education's Battle Amid Growing Anti-Semitism
How do climates of fear and hate affect our learners' identity formation?
How much should educators acknowledge acts of terror and anti-Semitism, versus shielding children from harsh realities?
How do we teach about these attacks when Jewish teens are divided on whether these attacks were anti-Semitic, another episode of gun violence, or parallel to oppression that other communities face?
The Jewish Education Project's 2019 Jewish Futures Conference is an exploration of how our community can encourage the development of proud, thriving Jews, and how our orientation must shift in a climate of heightened anti-Semitic rhetoric and violence and outward-facing hatred in our society.
You have three choices on this page for how to view the conference:
- Our YouTube playlist where you can watch one video after another or choose from the built-in dropdown menu.
- If you want to browse you'll find each video on its own and can go in any order you want.
- For the full experience, you'll find two compilation videos at the end - one for the morning* and one for the afternoon. *Please note that due to prior arrangements, Bari Weiss only appears in the morning compilation.
Click on the 3 line menu in the top right corner (just below) to access any video in the playlist or scroll down the page.
