Issues in Judaism Lecture Series: 1918-2018: The Rise of Vicious Anti-Semitism; The German-American Bund and the KKK on LI and in the Eastern U.S.

The Issues in Judaism Lecture Series presents Jews on Long Island and in the United States: Perspectives on the American Experiment: “Melting Pot” or “Mosaic.” The second lecture Part II: 1918-2018: The Rise of Vicious Anti-Semitism; The German-American Bund and the KKK on Long Island and in the Eastern United States brings us through modern times.  Prejudices persisted even as the Jews, whose diversity is still seldom recognized, advanced as America’s super-achieving “minority.”

This lecture is the followup to 1654-1917: More Progress Than Prejudice for Jews on Monday, March 12, 4:30 p.m. RSVP for March 12 lecture.

Speaker for both lectures: Michael D’Innocenzo, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Hofstra University. Professor D’Innocenzo is a founding member of Hofstra’s Center for Civic Engagement and co-editor, American Immigration and Ethnicity: Melting Pot or Salad Bowl? His current projects include an NEH grant with East Meadow Library, “Becoming American” and the America: Who Should We Welcome, What Should We Do?”


Location for both lectures: Guthart Cultural Center Theater, Axinn Library


Funding for these lectures has been provided in part, by the Dorothy and Elmer Kirsch Endowment Fund for the Hofstra Cultural Center.
