One of our “Afterthought” presentations in late March would be a follow-up of the film Skin. It was a powerful and graphic depiction of anti-Semitism in America. On Sunday, August 9 at 4:00 pm we will continue with an examination of anti-semitism in regard to how it has pivoted on university campuses.
ADL has reported that anti-Semitism has dramatically increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. Online and written attacks against the State of Israel have also dramatically risen and are especially visible on the campus. Mark Yudof and Miriam Elman, Board members of the Academic Engagement Network, will discuss how radical groups are trying to delegitimize Israel on campus and what we must do to counter this. Elman has published articles in Ha’aretz, NPR and the Forward. In 2018, she was named “one of the top 100 people positively influencing Jewish life.” She has taught Political Science at Syracuse University. Yudof was President of the University of California from 2008 to 2013, and is Emeritus Professor of Law at Cal.
