In the aftermath of October 7th, antisemitism on college campuses is in the news and on many peoples’ minds. What does antisemitism look like on local campuses? What is the lived experience? How can we as a community support our students? Join representatives from American University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, and University of Maryland for a conversation about how these issues show up at their schools. 


Panelists include Jason Benkendorf, Executive Director at American University Hillel, Profesor Ilai Saltzman, Director of the Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies at the University of Maryland, Gershon Stein, Georgetown University Student and Colin Powell Leadership Program Intern at the U.S. Department of State Office of Israeli and Palestinian Affairs, and Allison Stone, George Washington University student and member of Hillel International’s student cabinet. Moderated by Adam Lehman, President and CEO at Hillel International.

The Capital Jewish Museum explores the Jewish experience in the national capital region and inspires visitors to connect, reflect, and act—connect personally and collectively, reflect on the relevance of the past to today, and act on behalf of their communities and values. With its experimental spirit, the Museum connects the past to the present through thought-provoking exhibitions, dynamic programming, and creative public experiences. The Community Action Lab invites visitors to engage through hands on-activities, resources, workshops, games, and more.
