Join us for a panel discussion and open dialogue that focuses on the impact acts of hate have on the individuals and communities being targeted, whether Jewish, Black, LGBTQ+, or others, and how we, as a larger community, can work together to provide mutual support. We will hear and learn from each other in a safe, non-political space. The event will be moderated by Hope McMath, Curator of JFCS’s Frisch Family Holocaust Memorial Gallery.
Panelists will include community leaders who will address this subject, along with second-generation Holocaust survivors who share their family's history surviving the Holocaust and the impact it has had on the next generations. Those in attendance are encouraged to join the conversation during the moderated Q&A section with the panelists. Takeaways will be provided for attendees so they can follow up with these organizations and stay engaged after the program.
