Author and professor Stuart Brody will trace the origins of modern-day antisemitism in Europe, its evolution in Nazi Germany and its resonance with trends of antisemitism in current-day America. Drawing from both secular and Jewish sources, Brody will analyze the ethical foundations of resistance, and their applicability to current challenges to the Jewish people.

Brody is the author of The Law of Small Things: Creating a Habit of Integrity in a Culture of Mistrust, (Berrett-Koehler 2019) and the forthcoming Humphrey and Me (Santa Monica, September 2023). He teaches ethics at the University of Arizona and is Senior Scholar at the Institute for Ethics in Public Life at the State University of New York. He speaks nationally on issues of public integrity.

Presented by HHREC in partnership with Congregation Emanu-El of Westchester.
