Lapin will share insights on Father Coughlin and modern anti-Semitism, sponsored by Sholem Aleichem Institute.
Andrew Lapin, Editor of the Jewish News, will deliver a talk on Father Charles Coughlin and anti-Semitism at the Jewish Community Center in West Bloomfield, Sunday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m.
The talk, “Father Coughlin’s Children: Modern Anti-Semitism in America,” is sponsored by the Sholem Aleichem Institute, a secular non-political Jewish organization which organizes educational, cultural and social activities.
Lapin will discuss his own independent research into the life and lasting influence of Coughlin, the anti-Semitic “radio priest” who founded the Shrine of the Little Flower Catholic parish in Royal Oak, and explore modern-day parallels to the mass-media demagogue. He will also discuss the JN‘s ongoing year-long reporting project on anti-Semitism and his goals for how the publication can cover this pressing threat.
There is no charge to attend.
Co-sponsored by, and located at:
