Addressing Anti-Semitism Training

Through a cross-campus collaboration between Hendricks Chapel, Syracuse Hillel, and the STOP Bias Program, this 90-minute informative and interactive session was developed for Syracuse students to engage in a safe space and learning opportunity to gain understanding of anti-Semitism, its impact on our campus, and ways in which we can all foster a more inclusive campus culture. Through this session, participants will critically analyze incidents and images to understand how anti-Semitism has persisted and is perpetuated in society, the harm it causes, and how to help build a more just community. Staff and peer facilitators for this session will teach participants how to recognize potentially anti-Semitic behavior, inform and encourage participants to take appropriate action, and provide additional resources to support students targeted and mistreated by anti-Semitic acts. The session is an introduction into the topic and all students of varying awareness levels, backgrounds, and experiences are welcome to join in the session and discussion. Participation for this pilot training is limited to 25 undergraduate students.
