Anti-Israelism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism Lecture
January 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The CSULB Jewish Studies Program is very pleased to again partner with the Orange County One Month Community Scholar Program. This year’s speaker is Dr. Marc Dollinger. He will speak on “Anti-Israelism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism.”
One of the thorniest questions in contemporary American Jewish life, the boundaries between anti-Israelism, anti-Zionism, and anti-Semitism are now the subject of university policy debates as well as proposed state and federal action. Dr. Dollinger’s presentation offers historical background into each category, outlining the points of debate in this highly-contentious subject.
Dr. Marc Dollinger holds the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Endowed Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University. He is an author and an expert in the fields of Jews and American politics, American Zionism and California Jews. A past president of both the Jewish Community High School of the Bay and Brandeis Hillel Day School, Marc serves as academic vice president of Lehrhaus Judaica as well as trustee of URJ Camp Newman and the Bay Area Jewish Healing Center. He sits on the California advisory committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights, was named 2008 Volunteer of the Year by the SF Jewish Community Federation and was awarded the San Francisco JCRC’s 2015 Courageous Leader award for his work against the BDS movement.
Like all Jewish Studies talks, this concert and discussion is free and open to the public; there is no need to reserve a space.
