There is a problem with modern increases in anti-semitism. Education is a possible remedy for this. This project aims to educate students about the increasingly nuanced modern anti-semitism by gathering qualitative data in the form of stories from Jews of older generations.
As a young Jew who came of age politically under the Trump administration, I see anti-semitism as a pressing issue. I have also been somewhat discouraged by the lack of education about anti-semitism at my school, and as a result felt that it was important to do a research project about anti-semitism and how to combat it.
