FLOODTIDE: HOW THE REFUGEE CRISIS IS REMAKING EUROPE

Congregation B'nai Tikvah
Saturday, Nov. 10 7:30pm

Description

The recent migration of about 1.5 million mostly Muslim refugees has convulsed the continent as nothing since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Ultra-rightwing populist movements have surged and the EU has been seriously and perhaps irreparably weakened. Acts of kindness toward the migrants have been intermingled with hate crimes against them; some of the refugees themselves have behaved abominably including committing anti-Semitic acts, while many others have already contributed much to their host societies. We will examine the prospects for Europe and its Jews in a time of turmoil and transformation across the Atlantic.

Admission is free and open to the public. RSVP recommended to underonetent@hotmail.com.

Sponsors: CCJCC & Cong. B’nai Tikvah in partnership with Beth Chaim Cong., Cong. B’nai Shalom, CCJDS, Lehrhaus Judaica & Temple Isaiah.
