Nevada and the Temple Sinai Reno Library Committee announced today that they will be hosting “Antisemitism: There, Then, and Now,” a free panel discussion and community event, taking place on April 17, 2024, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Temple Sinai Reno (3405 Gulling Rd. Reno, NV. 89503). This event, which is sponsored by Jewish Nevada and Edward Jones-Skyline, is aimed at exploring the historical roots and contemporary manifestations of antisemitism.

Scholars and community leaders will lead the discussion, including James McSpadden, PhD., assistant professor of modern history at the University of Nevada, Reno; Dennis Dworkin, PhD., professor of history at the University of Nevada, Reno; and Elliot Malin, chair of the Nevada Governor’s Advisory Council on Education Relating to the Holocaust. The dialogue will be moderated by Mara Langer, director of community engagement at Jewish Nevada.  Nevada dignitaries will be in attendance to present proclamations during the event.

“Antisemitism: There, Then, and Now” will include presentations from each speaker. Dr. McSpadden will focus on the origins of modern antisemitism in Europe; Dr. Dworkin will focus on antisemitism in America between the two world wars and Mr. Malin’s focus will be the state of antisemitism within the Northern Nevada community. There will be a Q&A portion, followed by a meet and greet with refreshments.

This event provides the unique opportunity to deepen participants’ understanding of antisemitism’s historical legacy and contemporary relevance. While the event is free to the public, registration is required. For more information about the event or to register to attend, visit Jewish Nevada.
