Shabbat Salon: Nancy Koppelman

Friday, February 9, 2024 30 Sh'vat 5784

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Our February presenter will be Nancy Koppelman, presenting "The Oldest Hatred: Coming to Terms with Antisemitism" which comes to TBH through the Humanities WA Speakers Bureau. 


In 2021, 82 percent of American Jews said antisemitism had risen over the last five years, while only 44 percent of the general public believed that to be the case. How can we account for this striking difference?

Antisemitism is sometimes called “the oldest hatred,” and this talk will show how religious and racial prejudice shaped Jewish experience over millennia and came to unite diverse Jewish people around the world. Topics will include the origins of Jewish stereotypes, how antisemitism intersects with white nationalism, and the difference between critiques of the Israeli government and discrimination against Jews. Attendees will gain new knowledge and understanding about antisemitism along with strategies to address it.


Our Shabbat Salons this year will not include a full service in the Sanctuary. Rather, we will join in-person in community to celebrate Shabbat in the social hall with several prayers before we enjoy a catered vegetarian dinner by Nineveh.  The presentation begins between 7:30 and 7:45 pm, and the event typically concludes at 9:00 pm. Each menu is specially created just for TBH!

Our February dinner menu:

  • Variety of Salatim (side dishes)
  • Veggie skewers
  • Herb basmati rice
  • Fava bean pilaf
  • Baklava
