Community Conversation: Antisemitism in Nebraska

January 11, 2023 | 7pm

Alan J. Levine Theater at the Staenberg Omaha JCC

Many in our community have expressed concern after the ubiquitously covered, bombastic behavior of Ye, Irving, and Chappelle. People want to know “Where are our allies? Why aren’t they showing up and speaking up?” “What are we in Omaha doing to respond?” Join us for a Community Conversation to address the rise of antisemitism, what we should be aware of, and what is being done to keep our community - and others - safe.

Our panel of experts features Special Agent in Charge of the Nebraska-Iowa FBI Field Office, Eugene Kowel; Felix Ungerman, representing Congressman Don Bacon’s office; the City of Omaha’s Director of Diversity Equity and Inclusion, Keith Station; Regional Director of the Anti-Defamation League Midwest, David Goldenberg; JFO’s Safety & Security Manager, James Donahue; and Dr. Ari Kohen, political science professor, chair of the Norman and Bernice Harris Center for Judaic Studies, and editor of the book Antisemitism on the Rise: The 1930’s and Today. Meet our panel.

This event is free to attend. A reception with light refreshments will follow the program.

Please contact Pam Monsky, JCRC Assistant Director, or call (402) 334-6572.
