The Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies will present a lecture and discussion entitled “(En)countering Hatred: Lessons from Charlottesville” on Nov. 18 at 5 p.m.

The event will feature Deacon Don Gathers of the First Baptist Church and Rabbi Tom Gutherz of Congregation Beth Israel, both of Charlottesville, Virginia.

The speakers will address their experiences during the hateful events that took place in Charlottesville two years ago and about how the town’s community has come together to counter the hatred expressed by the Unite the Right rally in 2017.

Following their presentations, the floor will be open for discussion with the two speakers.

The discussion and Q-and-A will begin at 5 p.m. in 519 Kaneff Tower, at York University’s Keele Campus. Kosher refreshments to follow.
