May 2, 2024 $0.00 - $18.00


In this seminar, we will consider how we’ve arrived at this moment of an outpouring of anti-Jewish venom on campus and what can be done to reintroduce civility and mutual respect between the alienated and offended groups. What is the underlying cause of this explosion of hostility, and what is the University’s responsibility to address the issue? A sober and nuanced assessment by a 50-year veteran of the campus wars.
