The Anti-Defamation League, a watch-dog organization on antisemitism and racism, reports, “Antisemitic Incidents in the United States recorded more than 2,100 acts of assault, vandalism and harassment, an increase of 12 percent over the previous year…”, with attacks on synagogues, Jewish individuals, Jewish institutions, cemeteries vandalized, statements denying the Holocaust, and more.

Teaching about antisemitism isn’t a core part of the curriculum, and this absence leads to a range of issues, from microaggressions to the types of violent acts that the ADF tracks. It’s important to include antisemitism in an inclusive curriculum because its absence perpetuates the rise in overt and not-so-overt instances that ADF has identified.

Within an awareness of this context, theatre provides an avenue to share this information with students and to invite conversation about these issues. In this session, participants will engage in a modeling session to experience how this pedagogy, grounded in practices of cultural memory, and will reflect on how they could integrate this practice into their own teaching.
