Overview

Michael Berenbaum and his colleagues have produced a truly significant collection of essays which not only furthers our understanding of antisemitism at the present moment, but underscores the importance of recognizing that the world's oldest hatred has taken a new turn: that the antisemitism of the past is not the antisemitism of the present.These important essays need to be read, digested, and placed in the hands of everyone who remains concerned that hatred against Jews continues to rear its ugly head and the solution is not beyond our willingness to confront it boldly and with knowledge.

Editorial Reviews

Choice - Book Reviewer
"Highly recommended. All levels/libraries."
Samuel Rosenthal Center for Judaic Studies - Peter J. Haas
"This collection of essays by a variety of authors coming from diverse perspectives brings to our attention that the anti-semitism we are witnessing today is not the same as what we have seen in the past.
One clear lesson of this book is that the responses of the past will not necessarily work today. The book shows clearly that we have to come to a new and considered understanding of the social, political and religious underpinnings of the “new anti-Semitism”. While this collec

I purchased this book and after awhile think i may regret doing so. I am sad to see this disenigrate into a blame paper on the responsibility of christians for the Holocaust and percieving them as inflaming current trends of anti-semetism for some collective guilt. My heritage is Jewish, though i have mostly barely lived it. Just an ethnic thing than religious. Most of my friends are athiest or secular christians. Recently i have seen a trend among my secular and panthiestic friends an extreme sympathy toward palestinians and islam in general. I have increasingly felt an unease around what once were close friends. Feeling maybe i should get back to my roots, maybe i am not as accepted as i once thought. So i purchased this book to try and get an idea of how to navigate this growing dis-ease toward Israel and the Jewish people amongst the mainstream. From what i have seen out in the world right winged christians may now be the ONLY voice that remains friendly toward maintaining the state of Israel. We have lost the rest of the world. Young people are seeing Israel as an aggressor on the nightly news. Secular movements are blaming the Jews for the financial crisis. And Islam is now the worlds fastest growing religion. You are way off base blaming this antisemetic sentiment now resurging in the world on christian guilt. The problem is far bigger than that my friend.
