What roles have Jewish families played in Charlottesville’s history? For the Jewish people, America has always been viewed as a land of opportunity — a place where Jews can thrive without fear of discrimination. What are the limits of that opportunity? How are anti-immigration sentiments linked to anti-Semitism? And how should we respond to the rise of anti-Semitism in America today?

Join Phyllis Leffler, Professor Emeritus at the University of Virginia, to consider these questions. Presented by the Williamsburg Temple Beth El Program Committee and funded by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

This event is free and open to the public.
