Lunch And Learn- The State of Anti-Semitism in America: What Can We Do? // a talk by Peggy Shukur

March 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In recent years, many of us have been shaken by the surge in anti-Semitic incidents. A key resource in combatting anti-Semitism is the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

Peggy Shukur, Deputy Regional Director of ADL New England, will provide an update on current trends and what the ADL is doing – with time to respond to your questions.

Lunch And Learn- The Medieval Roots of Anti-Semitism // a talk by UVM Professor Sean Field

Ohavi Zedek Synagogue 188 North Prospect Street, Burlington, VT

Modern anti-Semitism has its roots in medieval Europe, in terms of ideology, history, and geography.

Background:

Judy Hershberg wrote…
It is my pleasure to announce that Wayne Senville has graciously consented to take over the
reins at Lunch & Learn, the once-a-month program that I have been honored to chair since
2007. It was time for a change, and Wayne is eminently qualified to step in and continue to
seek out speakers and presentations that reflect our Jewish and community interests.
Wayne, who holds a law degree and a Master’s in City Planning, came to Vermont in 1988 with
his family to accept the position of Director of Local and Regional Planning Assistance in the VT
Dept. of Housing and Community Affairs. He subsequently founded a citizen planners journal,
which gained nationwide readership, and was the recipient of many awards and honors in the
planning field. Attuned to social justice, both he and his wife, Lila Shapero, continue to have an
active voice in neighborhood and community issues, and beyond. Wayne himself was a Lunch &
Learn presenter in 2008 (“Across America on Route 50: Conversations with Citizens and
Planners on the State of Our Cities & Towns) and again in 2019 (“How the 1903 Kishinev
Pogrom Shocked the World”). Look for an exciting L&L series in 2022/23, with innovative ideas, including panel discussions. A shift from Thursdays to Tuesdays, too!
