Conversations on Europe: "Europe Jews: Past, Present, Future?"
|Venue:||FIU - Green Library - GL 156|
Conversations on Europe videoconference series with the University of Pittsburgh:
"Europe Jews: Past, Present, Future?"
By all accounts, the number of anti-Semitic incidences—including violent attacks on synagogues, businesses and individuals—has reached a postwar high across Europe. Official responses and those of community leaders have varied, as have explanations. Some point to the re-emergence of age-old European attitudes or populist political parties while others suggest a link to Europe’s changing demographic or a reflection of the unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This Conversation will explore the current situation of Jewish communities in light of Europe’s past and with a view toward the future.
