Book Discussion: "Anti-Semitism: Why is it Everyone's Concern" with Amy Leos-Urbel

Amy Leos-Urbel will lead this time to share our insights about reading the booklet: Anti-Semitism: Why is it Everyone's Concern?

This booklet is about how anti-Semitism is used to divide Jews from other groups -- and from each other -- and how to educate non-Jews to be our allies. It was written by Cherie Brown and Amy Leos-Urbel and published by Jews and Allies United to End Anti-Semitism.

Suggested donation: $6 - $36

Leaving Memel - Refugees from the Reich @ All Souls Church

Leaving Memel - Refugees from the Reich tells the story of Judith Golden's family and what they experienced when the times changed and Hitler began demonizing Jews, homosexuals and Romani people in Europe. It's a small, personal memoir tucked inside a much larger, darker tale and has strong resonance today as anti-immigration fervor reaches new highs under our present leadership. It's also a story of survival, great timing and strong family bonds that make the difference between life and death.
