A Community Chanukah Celebration: Shining a Light on Antisemitism

A COMMUNITY CHANUKAH CELEBRATION

Shine a Light on Antisemetism
SUNDAY DEC 5 | 7 PM

 

On Sunday, December 5th at 6:30 p.m., the Atlanta Israel Coalition in partnership with the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta is hosting “Shine a Light on Antisemitism”, a community-wide interfaith family Chanukah celebration. On this 8th night of Chanukah, we will shine a light on the recent rise in antisemitism and delegitimization of Israel. We will explore community and individual responses to antisemitism in all its mutations and modern forms.  

 

Guest speakers include Virág Gulyás, the NYC coordinator for End Jew Hatred, a grassroots civil rights movement dedicated to ensuring Jewish liberation from centuries of persecution and achieving justice for the Jewish people through peaceful direct action; and Gerard Filitti, a New York City-based human rights attorney. He serves as Senior Counsel at The Lawfare Project, a Jewish civil rights litigation fund and think tank that focuses on matters of civil and human rights, antisemitism, discrimination, and counterterrorism.

 

The celebration will include the lighting of the Chanukah Menorah, entertainment, sufganiyot, dreidels, and more. All are welcome! DOORS OPEN AT 6:30 PM.

 

Registration and event details can be found here. Contact Rabbi Glusman or Cheryl Dorchinsky with any questions.

    Jews of Color in Early America with Author Laura Leibman

    The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents this exclusive author talk with Professor Laura Leibman author of Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multi-Racial Jewish Family. Professor Leibman will share the extraordinary story of a Jewish genealogist from a prominent American family with a Jewish American pedigree going back before the Revolutionary War. She was searching for her grandmother's maternal line, and expected to find wealthy Sephardic Jews. Instead, she found poor, enslaved ancestors whose life stories will upend many of the ideas that we have about ourselves.
