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.

Upcoming Lunch And Learns:
It is my pleasure to announce that Wayne Senville has graciously consented to take over thereins at Lunch & Learn, the once-a-month program that I have been honored to chair since2007. It was time for a change, and Wayne is eminently qualified to step in and continue toseek 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 withhis family to accept the position of Director of Local and Regional Planning Assistance in the VTDept. 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 theplanning field. Attuned to social justice, both he and his wife, Lila Shapero, continue to have anactive 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 andPlanners on the State of Our Cities & Towns”) and again in 2019 (“How the 1903 KishinevPogrom 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!
