Is America Different? Anti-Semitism in the United States
Panel Discussion with Lila Corwin Berman (Temple University), Tony Michels (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Jonathan Sarna (Brandeis University). Moderated by Samuel G. Freedman (Columbia University).
In the wake of the murderous attack on Pittsburghs Tree of Life Synagogue, anti-Semitism in America fosters debate. To what extent is America different from diaspora countries? Do more recent events warrant a change in our understanding, or is this part of longer patterns? Join award-winning historians Lila Corwin Berman, Tony Michels and Jonathan Sarna for a conversation that covers recent events but is also rooted in history. Documents and images from the AJHS archives will punctuate the conversation.
