Online Learning to Navigate and Challenge Antisemitism in Schools

Thursday, February 29, 2024
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (EST)

Event Details

The recent steep rise of antisemitism in U.S. schools and communities and around the world has the power to cause harm to students. Young people are witnessing bias and hate in the news, on social media and among their peers but may not understand how to define and recognize antisemitism. Educators and school leaders play an important role in the growth and safety of their students and have the power to foster a generation that stands up against all forms of identity-based hate. Be among the first to experience the Anti-Defamation League’s new interactive online course for middle and high school students, Awareness to Action: Challenging Antisemitism, launching in March. The course creates an engaging learning experience for students, developing a holistic understanding of antisemitism. It helps students deepen real-world connections and develop empathy and understanding via Jewish teens’ stories and experiences. As a result of this course, students are equipped with the tools to recognize and challenge antisemitism.
