The Launch of America's First
M.A. in Antisemitism Studies


 

TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 7:00 PM,
FREE, OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, IN-PERSON ONLY

Speakers:
Dr. Zev Eleff, President of Gratz College
Dr. Ayal Feinberg, Director of the Center for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights

Keynote:
AWAKE MY PEOPLE: Jewish Responses to Antisemitism
Dr. Avinoam Patt, Inaugural director of NYU’s Center for Study of Antisemitism and the Maurice Greenberg Professor of Holocaust Studies in NYU’s Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies
What's the difference between a Jewish optimist and a Jewish pessimist? And how does the punchline of this classic joke shed light on our interpretation of the relationship between antisemitism and the development of modern Jewish identity? In this talk, Prof. Avinoam Patt will explore how Jewish responses to persecution (and acceptance) have affected the development of Jewish identity in the modern period, through the lens of political, religious, social and cultural movements that have shaped the Jewish encounter with the modern world.
