Ending Anti-Semitism in America
Ending Anti-Semitism in America
Course Description: With approximately 5.7 million people who actively practice the faith, the United States has the world’s second largest population of Jewish people in the world (World Jewish Population, 2016). With a history marked with genocide during the Holocaust in World War II, the Jewish people have been resilient in their efforts to find a safe home in the United States. Even with the defeat of Nazism, acts of Anti-Semitism linger across the United States today, from our classrooms to our communities. Because one of the primary functions of public education is to develop a well-informed citizenry, educators have an ethical responsibility to advocate for Jewish students and develop an awareness to fight against anti-Semitism in their classrooms.
This course will cover the Jewish faith, its traditions, and the experience of Jewish students in today’s educational setting. The course will highlight how microaggressions, acts of discrimination, and violent acts of anti-semitism manifest in the United States. At the end of the course, participants will develop an implementation plan to advocate for Jewish students and other students of religious minorities in their classrooms.
This is a one credit course.
