The Trojan “Bourse”

Thursday September 8 9am

Dan Harris, a leading specialist in the financial markets, and Natasha Hausdorff speak about his new book, “The Trojan Bourse” which  analyses how the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement seeks to influence divestment and exclusion of stocks from investment portfolios.

Harris likens this to the Greek myth of the Trojan Horse – where the Greeks besieging Troy built a wooden horse, hid soldiers inside it, and left it outside the city, as a gift.  When it was wheeled into Troy, the Greek soldiers jumped out and sacked the city.  In Harris’s analogy, the securities markets are encircled by a wall of laws and financial regulations. The votive gift is information, but the information conceals within it a political agenda, that will wreak havoc if brought inside the citadel.

Roots of Antisemitism and Its Contemporary Resurgence

Sept 8 noon

From medieval accusations that Jews murder Christians for their blood to the modern-day conspiracy theories animating present-day political discourse, it’s clear that the belief that Jews are plotting against society never dies—it just adapts to suit the times. Join the editor and contributors of Looking for an Enemy: 8 Essays on Antisemitism and AJU’s President Dr. Jeffrey Herbst for a nuanced, global understanding of antisemitism across ages, political ideologies, and nationalities. In their essays, American rabbi Jill Jacobs explores the thorny question of antisemitism in politics, journalist Natasha Lehrer explores the culture of antisemitism in France and the forces behind it, and Jo Glanville searches for the historical roots of this dangerous hatred.

Panelists with American Jewish Committee, The Deborah Project, Alliance for Constructive Ethnic Studies, and CAMERA

Ethnic Studies is becoming a mandatory subject in many US states, a requirement for graduating from high school, yet it has been shown to be antisemitic, and has led to a serious confrontation between the Jewish community and educators and politicians in California. What are the implications for the Jewish community, especially when Ethnic studies does not recognize Jews as an ethnicity?
