Addressing bigotry on college campuses


Hatred of the Jews is real in our global network. Indifference and ignorance are no excuses to allow its terror to spread through propaganda and the false teachings of history. “Hate Spaces” is a powerful film about the college campus anti-Semitism/anti-Zionist crisis. The film examines how anti-Semitism is being made fashionable at many American universities through the ongoing academic delegitimization of Israel, and the normalization of hatred in the name of social justice.

Alan Dershowitz stated, “‘Hate Spaces’ is a wakeup call to the Jewish community and to civil society in America about the institutionalization of bigotry on college campuses.”

After the showing, the film’s director and producer, Avi Goldwasser, will discuss the inspiration behind the film and how the Jewish National Fund, a sponsor of the film, is working to celebrate Israel’s accomplishments and cultural landscape across campuses, through programs like Caravan for Democracy and the Campus Fellowship Program.

“Hate Spaces” will be shown at Congregation Ohev Shalom, 613 Concourse Parkway, Maitland, at 7 p.m. on Feb. 12. There is no charge for admission. This film is also sponsored by Gale Milgrim, PA, Keller Williams Real Estate and Milgrim Law Group.
