Join us for a virtual conversation with award-winning writer Dara Horn in conversation with Abraham Foxman, national director emeritus of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
In her first work of nonfiction, acclaimed writer Dara Horn delves into difficult truths in a series of thoughtful, provocative, urgent essays, People Love Dead Jews: Reports From a Haunted Present. Abraham Foxman brings decades of experience monitoring and fighting global antisemitism to the conversation of the past, present, and a more hopeful future.
Together, their wide-ranging conversation will touch on Jewish memory, history, identity, and antisemitism.
We’ll also hear more about what UJA is doing to help our city recover, come back stronger, and make sure no one is left behind.
