Anti-Defamation League Regional Board Chair Eric Kingsley Speaks about Anti-Semitism at Shomrei Torah Synagogue
On January 27th, Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Regional Board Chair Eric Kingsley and Associate Regional Director Matthew Friedman participated in a three-part series sponsored by Shomrei Torah Synagogue. Their presentation, titled, Hatred, Bigotry and Anti-Semitism, covered anti-semitism in Los Angeles, the U.S. and the World.
According to the ADL post (link here), Kingsley explained details of various countries including those with the highest and lowest index of anti-Semitism and those with highest rates of ignorance or misinformation about the Holocaust.
Friedman and Kingsley discussed key anti-Semitic incidents from the past, including the rise in anti-Semitic incidents during the Gaza war in summer 2014. Friedman reminded the audience, “What happens in Israel doesn't stay in Israel. We see the ramifications around the world and in our own backyard.”
