Forum on anti-Semitism to be held this Sunday

MIDDLEBURY — This Sunday, March 19, Middlebury’s religious community will hold the third in a monthly series of community conversations that touch on religion in contemporary America.
“Anti-Semitism: Then and Now” will take place 4-5:30 p.m. at the Congregational Church of Middlebury (UCC).
In response to the disturbing increase in anti-Semitic violence across the country in 2017, the Rev. Andrew Nagy-Benson and Emily Joselson invited the public to a panel discussion with four friends and neighbors. The panel will consist of Robert Schine, Middlebury College’s Silberman Professor of Jewish Studies; Rebecca Ayako Bennette, director of Jewish Studies and Associate Professor of History at Middlebury College; Jack Mayer, pediatrician and author of “Before the Court of Heaven,” a book about Weimar Germany and the rise of the Third Reich; and Jessica Lipnack, author of six books about networks and virtual organizations.
Nagy-Benson is pastor of the Congregational Church of Middlebury and Joselson is a representative of Havurah, the Addison County Jewish Community.
The panel, with audience interaction, will explore anti-Semitism — past and present — in the context of intolerance in our society. Participants will seek constructive ways to express solidarity and foster community.
The church is located at 2 Main St. in Middlebury.
