The Ethical Society-- 2nd Floor Classroom
1906 Rittenhouse Square

Join JVP Philly to discuss selected essays from Jewish Voice for Peace's new volume, just out from Haymarket Books, On Antisemitism: Solidarity and the Struggle for Justice in Palestine. 

We have a few copies of the book for sale, or you can order it online.

Haymarket says: "Jewish Voice for Peace has curated a collection of essays that provides a diversity of perspectives and standpoints. Each contribution explores critical questions concerning uses and abuses of antisemitism in the twenty-first-century, focusing on the intersection between anti-Semitism, accusations of anti-Semitism, and Palestinian human rights activism."

Feel free to read the whole book, or whatever chapters move you. Some chapters that the facilitators will be especially excited to talk about are:
