Hate at Home: Antisemitism and Why it Matters Today
Thursday, February 11, 2021 | 4:00 pm | Zoom
There is a rising tide of hate and polarization in America and beyond. One need only to look at the recent attack on the Capitol to see hate and antisemitism on display. Recently released data crimes shows hate crimes at a 16-year high, according to the FBI. The most recent study on antisemitism by the ADL shows that the number of incidents in 2019 were the highest since they began reporting in 1979. Ohio is not immune to this current trend. Join the HHC and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Cincinnati as we discuss how antisemitism has changed over time. From the Holocaust in Europe to contemporary antisemitism and hate in our own state, be inspired to combat antisemitism and other forms of extremism in your own communities. Register Here

Educator Workshop: Defining and Teaching Genocide Part 1
Saturday, January 30, 2021 | 10:00 am | Zoom
What is genocide? The word, coined by Raphael Lemkin, describes the mass murder of the Armenians in World War I and what took place during the Holocaust. The word was created to ensure that those who committed the crimes that took place during these events could be fully prosecuted under the crime of genocide. The definition was also to be applied as a warning to prevent future atrocities. This workshop will explore the definition of the word, how it has been used to help teachers educate their students about genocide, and how it relates to the Holocaust and future and past mass atrocities. We will also explore rationale for teaching genocide and share resources to help you achieve your goals. Register Here
