In her latest book, “People Love Dead Jews,” acclaimed author Dara Horn explores a pointed question: Why do far too many people seem to love dead Jews but ignore the living ones?

In 2022, the Holocaust continues to make headlines, fill our films and fiction and generate extraordinary interest far beyond our community. Yet ignorance and indifference toward Jew-hatred today seems to be higher than ever. What’s going on?

Agreeable Jews, dead Jews and the challenge of diversity—is there any connection between recent antisemitic attacks and recent controversies about public Holocaust education? Actually, yes, and it’s built into a strange historic bargain struck between Jews and non-Jewish societies, including here in the United States. Here are the parameters of that bargain and the reasons why we all should opt out.

Join us for a welcome reception on our patio plaza followed by a lively hour-long discussion. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

This event will be live-streamed for those who are unable to join in person.
