Beth David Jewish Book Discussion Group

December 10 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

People Love Dead Jews: Report from a Haunted Present
by Dara Horn, led by Rabbi Jaymee Alpert
Horn draws upon her travels, her research, and also her own family life to assert the vitality, complexity, and depth of Jewish life against an antisemitism that, far from being disarmed by the mantra of “Never forget,” is on the rise. As Horn explores the (not so) shocking attacks on the American Jewish community in recent years, she reveals the subtler dehumanization built into the public piety that surrounds the Jewish past―making the radical argument that the benign reverence we give to past horrors is itself a profound affront to human dignity.
