Jewish students, as a minority group, are encountering much of the same discomfort that other minorities face on campus and in the world, in that they don’t feel heard or acknowledged. This training is designed to help MIT students better understand the history of Judaism, the diversity of Jewish students/the Jewish community and how the rising climate of antisemitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel activity are impacting their peers and their feeling of being included in/excluded from campus life. The training covers the following topics: Understanding the diversity of the Jewish community (world-wide and on campus), Introduction to antisemitism and historic antisemitic tropes, Understanding when criticism of Israel crosses the line into antisemitism, Strategies for student leaders to build communities that are inclusive of Jewish students, Strategies to identify and respond to campus antisemitism.
