Anti-Semitism, Zionism, and Anti-Zionism


April 13, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Anti-Semitism and Zionism were intertwined since the beginning. Zionism arose as a response to anti-Semitism in Europe, while anti-Semites often embraced it as a solution to what they called “the Jewish problem.” Anti-Zionism emerged after World War I, creating complexity in the relationship between anti-Semitism and Zionism.
