Navigating Antisemitism in Schools: A Webinar for Parents with Young Children

Parent Class

In this session, we will explore best practices on how to address antisemitism and hate with your children. Gain contextual knowledge about antisemitism and its various manifestations, and tools for conversation with your family. We’ll explore what it means to be a parent of young children as we navigate the atmosphere of antisemitism in our children's schools.  We will also discuss how parents of young children can cultivate positive Jewish identity at this time. This webinar is for parents of children who attend non-Jewish independent or public schools. 

In collaboration with the Jewish Parents Leadership Council of NYC independent schools.
