Adult Ed at AJ: Antisemitism: Navigating the Post-10/7 Landscape, with Prof. Ayal Feinberg



On Saturday, April 20 at approximately 12:00 PM, Prof. Ayal Feinberg will review new data underscoring changes in antisemitism following the terrorist attack of 10/7. He’ll explore what we know about underlying mechanisms through which 10/7-specific antisemitism has manifested—blame, responsibility, and conspiracy. Then he’ll close with a discussion on how 10/7 is likely to permanently impact antisemitism and alter the identity of the diaspora moving forward. Formerly Assistant Professor of Political Science at Texas A&M University-Commerce, Ayal Feinberg joined Gratz College in the spring of 2023. As the Director of the Center for Holocaust Studies and Human Rights, he oversees the largest Holocaust and Genocide graduate program in the world. His research has been widely featured in leading journals and media outlets and is frequently utilized by practitioners and policymakers concerned with the insecurity of marginalized groups and the perseverance of the Jewish community. He is an expert in contemporary antisemitism, and among a small group of scholars seeking to better understand the phenomenon through event-count analysis and survey experiments. 

The cost is $18 per person, for non-AJ members. (Registration for AJ members: https://www.adathjeshurun.info/form/adult-ed-antijudaism.html.)
