Elephant & Castle

111 West Adams St., Chicago, IL 60603

In recent years, the lurking existence of anti-Semitism in American life has become apparent. Reports of anti-Semitic attacks across the country have increased, and allegations of anti-Semitic sentiments have been attributed to several public figures and elected officials.

But, of course, anti-Semitism is nothing new. It has a long history.

What are the origins of anti-Semitism? Are incidents of anti-Semitism increasing or are we just paying more attention to it now than we were before? Are all criticisms of Israel and Zionism anti-Semitic? What about the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) campaign?

Join AFF-Chicago and Jonathan Greenberg, executive director of the Jack Miller Freedom Initiative and a senior fellow with the Salomon Center, for a conversation on anti-Semitism in America.

Happy hour and networking begins at 6:00 pm. Conversation begins at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $10 and include complimentary food and two drink tickets.
