Demonization of the Jews has been a persistent characteristic of Western societies throughout history. Today, more than fifty years after the Holocaust, anti-Semites continue to perpetuate the myths, stereotypes, and obsessions that have characterized anti-Jewish rhetoric for two millennia. Many books have explored the roots and history of anti-Semitism, but Confronting Anti-Semitism is one of the first to offer practical strategies for responding to it on an individual level in one's personal life. The book examines the myths at the heart of anti-Semitism and provides step-by-step strategies for responding to them effectively. Each chapter is devoted to one particular slur used by anti-Semites and offers those concerned about prejudice the wherewithal to combat the charges that have been leveled against the Jewish people of all times and places.
