In summary, this program will:

-       Explore the programmatic implications of contemporary antisemitism on our work.  Sessions will look at: the challenges of antisemitism; the potential of our stories to fight hate; and the social impact of museums. Workshop sessions on fighting hate in communities will also be provided. This content made possible with support from the Leon Levy Foundation.

-       This program will also provide discussions and trainings on protecting our visitors, buildings, and artifacts from acts of hate.  Sessions will look at: being welcoming while being safe; new realities and threats; securing our material heritage; and tabletop exercises on preparedness.  This content made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
