2019-2020 James J. Kenneally Lecture in Jewish-Christian Relations
Sponsored by Stonehill College’s Catholic-Jewish Dialogue Committee
Recently, we have witnessed an unexpected spike in antisemitic activities
in the United States, including two deadly attacks on synagogues. Is this
a new phenomenon? What role has antisemitism actually played in American
history? Is it a pervasive phenomenon, a late and alien phenomenon, or
something in between? This lecture will trace the course of antisemitism
in the United States and consider the question of American exceptionalism.
Has America been different from Europe with respect to antisemitism?
How worried should we be about the spread of the world’s oldest hatred
to America’s shores?
Located at Stonehill College in the May Welcome Center, McCarthy Auditorium
This is a new building on campus with parking immediately adjacent.
Please join us for a reception in the foyer immediately following the lecture.
Speaker Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna,
is the Joseph H. & Belle R. Brau Professor of American Jewish History and Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, Brandeis University.
