• Antisemitism in the Age of Trump: A Roundtable Discussion with WFU Faculty

In light of the attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, the Jewish Studies Program at Wake Forest University presented a roundtable discussion entitled Antisemitism in the Age of Trump on Thursday, November 29 at 6:00pm in the Byrum Welcome Center. Six Wake Forest faculty members explored how the current political climate is contributing to a resurgence of antisemitism both in the United States and globally. They discussed how religious and racial concepts have shaped Jewish identity in America, how antisemitic caricatures have persisted over the last century, and how the recent immigration crisis has become intertwined with debates about Jewish participation in American politics.
