This years Community Free Synagogue Annual Winter Adult Education series is: "American Antisemitism": 7:00-9:00 PM Every Thursday in January in the Community Hall. Offered by the Rabbi, this college-level series explores how late 19th Century European antisemitism transitioned to United States through Henry Ford, Charles Coughlin, Charles Lindbergh and others. It will then focus on contemporary American antisemitism on the Left, Right, in the media and in the marketplace, focusing in on the many images and "dog whistles" used by antisemites. The class will finally address the question: "Are things really getting worse, why, and what can be done?" Thanks to your continued support, like all C.F.S. programs and events it is free and open to all!
