Anti-Semitism: Before During and Beyond the Holocaust presented by Barbara Aharoni at
Congregation Beth Jacob, 8 Pleasant Street,Plymouth, MA
on Sunday November 8, 2015 at 7 pm
Barbara Aharoni is a Jewish Educator, and a Holocaust Educator /Speaker for Facing History and Ourselves of Massachusetts and the Holocaust Education Resource Center of Rhode Island. She is presently on the faculty of Congregation Sha’aray Shalom in Hingham and for many years was Curriculum Coordinator and teacher for Congregation Beth Jacob. In 2012 she completed the Me’ah Program of Hebrew College and attended the Summer Seminar for Holocaust Educators at Yad VaShem’s International School of Holocaust Studies in Jerusalem, Israel.
When speaking to various local groups the most commonly asked question by those learning the history of the Holocaust is “Why the Jews?” Most people think that Hitler’s anti-Semitism, his racial ideology, was the primary reason for the largest industrialized mass extermination of humans in the history of world civilization. Barbara will trace the roots of anti-Semitism from its most ancient beginnings to those of today’s most recent headlines.
Open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
