Resisting Hate, Repairing the World

The LJD Jewish Family & Community Services is offering, free of charge, moderated panels to engage our community in response to the rise in antisemitism and hate group activities.

Companies, organizations, community centers, churches, civic groups, and others who wish to host an event, please contact Hope McMath at

RESISTING HATE, REPAIRING THE WORLD focuses on the impact acts of hate have on the individuals and communities being targeted, whether Jewish, Black, LGBTQ+, or others, and how we, as a larger community, can work together to provide mutual support. We will hear from and learn from each other in a safe, non-political space.

These events will be moderated by Hope McMath, Curator of JFCS’s Frisch Family Holocaust Memorial Gallery.

Panelists may include the leadership of 904Ward, JASMYN, and local interfaith groups, as well as educators, journalists, and other community leaders, along with second-generation survivors who share their family’s history surviving the Holocaust and the impact it has had on the next generations.

At the heart of each event is a moderated Q&A section for those in attendance to join in dialog with the panelists.

Once the conversation is over, takeaways will be provided for attendees to follow up with and stay engaged.

JFCS BELIEVES that hate is not the majority, but sometimes is the loudest. And we believe we have a responsibility to use the resources we have to educate the community, and work for common ground, in the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam – repairing the world.

The Community Conversation will be facilitated by Hope McMath, Curator of the Frisch Family Holocaust Memorial Gallery.

There will be an ASL interpreter for the community conversation.
