How Do We Stem the Rising Tide of Hate?

Stemming the Rising Tide of Hate: Better Futures through Jewish Learning

Tides of hate are on the rise all around us, from anti-Semitism to Islamophobia to racism and beyond. Come learn about some of the ways the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver is countering these tides in the classroom, on the campus, and beyond.

Join Dr. Sarah Pessin, professor and Interfaith Chair at the University of Denver, in a discussion with community member and Center for Judaic Studies supporter, Caz Eldridge. Sarah and Caz will talk about the mission of new Eldridge Fund for Judaic Studies and Cultural Diversity, including a conversation about the Center’s work in interfaith bridge-building and racial justice.

The gathering also features a private tour of DU’s Holocaust Memorial Social Action Site with a welcome from Dr. Adam Rovner, Director of the Center for Judaic Studies, and a conversation with Dr. Pessin about some of the Jewish ethical ideas at the memorial’s core.

Participants will also receive a follow-up invitation to join us on February 18 for the Vinnik Evening of Culture for a special screening of “Golda’s Balcony” about the life and works of a remarkable Jewish visionary.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
