“Antisemitism and the Meaning of Hanukkah Today”

ALL ARE WELCOME!  You BELONG at Beacon. Spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.

Antisemitism has never truly been dormant in Western society, but now it has landed center stage again throughout the world. A popular rapper praises Hitler, a former President dines with a notorious white supremacist, synagogues are mass murder sites, a neo-fascist group plots to overthrow the German government, Twitter abounds with the conspiratorial trope about Jewish global domination, and pedestrians are assaulted on Brooklyn street corners. How can we grapple with and fight antisemitism in our personal and communal lives? And how might the ancient heroic story of Hanukkah inspire us in 2023? Rev. Robin Landerman Zucker, preaching with Worship Associate Nancy Paxton. Music from Austin Shaw, Andrez Alcazar and members of the Beacon Choir.
