In these uncertain times, with widespread myths pervading the media, government policy, and our homes, there is a deeper urge to not only discover what is true, but to be able to recognize falsehoods. This year our Passover will be different from all other Passovers with more questions to share at real and virtual Seder tables.|
That's why we're pleased to announce that the discussion between Magda Teter (Fordham University) and Sara Lipton (SUNY Stony Brook) about Dr. Teters new book, Blood Libel: On the Trail of Antisemitic Myth, will happen online via Zoom, right before Passover on April 7 at 4 pm EST.
The book explores the medieval myth that Jews murder Christian children to use their blood and its surprising persistence over centuries, cultures, and continents. The invention and development of printed media contributed to widespread dissemination of the myth, turning it into a persistent template of hate: from mid-12th-century monastic manuscripts to the Facebook group Jewish Ritual Murder, shut down in 2014, and beyond.
