On April 17 at 7 PM, the Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies invites you to BU Hillel (4th Floor) to attend Rabbi David Wolpe’s lecture, Confronting Antisemitism: Historical Causes, Present Challenges, and Future Actions. Rabbi Wolpe will explore the deep roots of antisemitism and its resurgence in recent years.  He will also explore the intersection of anti-Zionism and antisemitism and suggest ways both can be addressed without doing violence to free speech and open discourse.

This hybrid event, organized by the Elie Wiesel Center in partnership with BU Hillel, will take place in person at BU Hillel (213 Bay State Road) and will also be live-streamed on Zoom. Registration is required for both in-person and Zoom attendance.
