Rockland museum begins anti-Semitism initiative

Rockland County’s Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education has launched the Jacob Katz Combatting Antisemitism Initiative; its goal is to combat the anti-Semitism, racism, and prejudice that’s been on the rise during the pandemic. Project Embrace is its first offering.

The program is appropriate for classrooms, boardrooms, and community organizations seeking to understand the history of anti-Semitism and to learn how to address it. With expert commentary on history and practical strategies to unpack personal bias, Project Embrace is designed to start important conversations on how we can build a world free of hate and prejudice. It features local Holocaust survivors and details global events.

For more information or to book a program, email Holocaustrcc@gmail.com, go to HolocaustStudies.org, or call (845) 574-4099.

Project Embrace and the Jacob Katz Combatting Antisemitism Initiative are funded in loving memory of Jacob Katz z”l by the Katz family.
