Panel discussion as part of the Rise in Hate series.

Panel discussion moderated by Senator Barry Finegold with community participants:

  • Rabbi Max Chaiken, Temple Emanuel of Andover
  • Cantor Vera Broekhuysen, Temple Emanu-El of Haverhill
  • Peggy Shukur, Interim Regional Director of Anti-Defamation League New England

Throughout the past several years we have witnessed a resurgence of virulent antisemitism, from the open embrace of white supremacist ideologies to celebrities, politicians, and insidious behaviors that appear across the political spectrum. Among the harmful effects have been increased levels of fear and isolation as Jewish communities throughout the United States, and the world at large, grapple with this age-old hatred in new ways. 

This Courageous Conversation aims to explore first-hand the Jewish experience as it is impacted by hate, sharing ways that the recent upswing in antisemitism has impacted our communities.  We will expand our conversation to discuss what each of us can do in a bold conversation about allyship, education, and the ways we can unite against hatred, bigotry, and intolerance.
