Ezra-Habonim in Skokie hosts this free lecture sponsored by the American Jewish Committee. Speaker Amy Stoken, the AJC's Chicago regional director, says in promotional materials that “over the past several years and peaking over the summer during the conflict with Hamas, Jews in Europe have been increasingly targeted. Businesses and synagogues have been vandalized and damaged. Jewish citizens have been brutally attacked and murdered. Chants of ‘Death to the Jews’ and ‘Gas the Jews’ have become commonplace in rallies and protests against Israeli policy. In France alone, we have seen a 91-percent spike in anti-Semitic attacks in 2014, according to the Jewish Community Protective Service.” For more information or for reservations, call the synagogue’s office at 847-675-4141.
