HJS is delighted to invite you to the event at which TNYT writer Bari Weiss will make a powerful case for renewing liberal values

About this Event

On 27 October 2018, Bari Weiss's childhood synagogue in Pittsburgh became the site of the deadliest attack on Jews in American history. For most of us, the massacre came as a total shock. But to those who have been paying attention, it was only a more violent, extreme expression of the broader trend that has been sweeping Europe and the United States for the past two decades.

How to Fight Anti-Semitism delves into the long history of anti-Semitism, dating back to 2nd century BCE, whilst exploring the shocking rise of hate-crimes against Jews today. This book is an urgent wake-up call, filled with examples of anti-Semites in the political sphere as well as recent extremist attacks.

No longer the exclusive province of the far right and far left, anti-Semitism finds a home in identity politics, in the renewal of 'America first' isolationism and in the rise of one-world socialism. An ancient hatred increasingly allowed into modern political discussion, anti-Semitism has been migrating toward the mainstream in dangerous ways, amplified by social media and a culture of conspiracy that threatens us all.

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to the event at which The New York Times writer Bari Weiss will make a powerful case for renewing Jewish and liberal values to guide us through this uncertain moment. Through history and lived experience, How to Fight Anti-Semitism is a gripping tell-all expose with an inspirational message.

SPEAKER:

Bari Weiss 

Op-ed Editor and Writer on Culture and Politics, The New York Times,

CHAIR:
