“Shine a Light on Antisemitism” Hanukkah Celebration

December 5, 2021 Atlanta Free

The community “Shine the Light on Antisemitism” Hanukkah Celebration hosted by the MJCCA and the Atlanta Israel Coalition is taking place at the JCC on Dec. 5 at 6:30 p.m.

Join us for a community-wide Hanukkah celebration as we shine a light on the recent rise in antisemitism and delegitimization of Israel. We will explore community and individual responses to antisemitism in all of its modern forms. This celebration will include a candle lighting, entertainment, sufganiyot, and guest speakers: Virág Gulyás, the NYC coordinator for End Jew Hatred, a grassroots civil rights movement dedicated to ensuring Jewish liberation from centuries of persecution and achieving justice for the Jewish people through peaceful direct action; and Gerard Filitti, a New York City-based human rights attorney. He serves as Senior Counsel at The Lawfare Project, a Jewish civil rights litigation fund and think tank that focuses on matters of civil and human rights, anti-Semitism, discrimination, and counterterrorism.

Registration and event details can be found here. Contact Rabbi Glusman or Cheryl Dorchinsky with any questions.

All are welcome! DOORS OPEN AT 6:30 PM
