CP To Offer Adult Class on Antisemitism This Weekend

Capital Punishment's Publisher Paul Foer will teach an adult education class on the history of Antisemitism called "Why the Jews?" at Temple Beth Shalom in Arnold at 09:30 am Sunday, February 17. The following Saturday evening, Foer will introduce and then lead a discussion following the showing of the 2006 film documentary, "The Protocols of Zion" by Mark Levin.

"The political, religious or ethnic hatred of the Jewish people, which in modern times has come to be known as Antisemitism, is perhaps the world's oldest and longest-lasting form of group hatred, " said Foer, who has an academic background in Jewish history and has been a political writer and activist. "Today antisemitism or anti-Jewish hatred manifests itself in many ways and in many places, but it is not simply a Jewish issue or a Jewish concern. When Jews are singled out and threatened, freedom, civil rights and everyone is also threatened. Just sixty years after the defeat of the Third Reich, we see the leader of an emerging regional, and possibly nuclear power make serious anti-Jewish statements and hold an international conference questioning the documented and systematic murder of millions of Jews known as The Holocaust. However, what is most disturbing is the ongoing, international campaign to delegitamize, isolate and otherwise damage if not destroy Israel, the Jewish State, through vehement, obsessive and outrageous claims."

The class will take place at Temple Beth Shalom in Arnold from 9:30 am to 11:30 am on Sunday, February 17th. On Saturday, February 23rd, Foer will introduce the movie "The Protocols of Zion" and then lead a discussion following the film. "Protocols" is a documentary about the outrageous claims of some that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were master-minded by a Jewish conspiracy. The film traces the development of such irrational ideas to an early 20th century Tsarist book "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" which has been repudiated and discredited numerous times yet is still published and read around the world.
That event begins at 7 pm. The film is 95 minutes.

Temple Beth Shalom is located at 1461 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. just off Route 2 in Arnold.
