Since October 7, the Anti-Defamation League has reported a nearly 400% increase in antisemitic incidents compared to last year, with many reported incidents taking place among youth audiences and within school environments. Please join the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (HERC) and the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation for a conversation on Zoom about rising antisemitism and trends we are seeing in Wisconsin schools, ways to support students and their families during this time, and resources available at no cost to schools related to DEI, Holocaust education, and Jewish identity.
Who is this for? Superintendents, administrators, guidance counselors, and any other educators
1. To share anonymous examples of reported antisemitic incidents we have received related to youth and schools
2. To advise educators on inquiries we’ve received related to current events and Act 30 (Holocaust and Genocide Education Mandate)
3. To provide an intro to antisemitism, from medieval times to the present, and show how learning about antisemitism and Jewish identity can become part of your school’s DEI work
4. To connect schools with free resources available through HERC and JCRC to support Holocaust education, Jewish learning, and anti-hate work
Kris McDaniel from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction will be available to answer questions.
Live Q&A: Submit questions anonymously in advance- what are you grappling with in your school? We’ll collect these with registration so that we can answer these when on zoom in a safe space; no one will know who asked the question. We’ll learn together!
