April 06, 2020 - Monday ADL - Plagues, Marginalization, and Fear: Yesterday and Today
Plagues, Marginalization, and Fear: Yesterday and Today
With Passover just around the corner and its stories of the exodus from Egypt, we remember many times in history when a plague has been blamed on the least powerful among us. The anti-Asian COVID-19 tropes, not to mention the age-old blame on the Jews, are just the most recent examples of this unfortunate human pastime.
Please join us via Zoom to hear from a diverse panel on the history, theology, and causes of both past and current episodes of this kind of marginalization. ADL's Associate Director of the Center on Extremism Aryeh Tuchman, will speak about the rise in Anti-Asian and antisemitic tropes, while three religious leaders from the community will speak from their moral and spiritual traditions, on why we need to work to refrain from marginalizing others.
