Driving out Darkness in the Heartland: 2024 Regional Summit on Combating Antisemitism

Monday, April 15, 2024Tuesday, April 16, 2024

April 2024 will mark 10 years since a gunman, fueled by antisemitism, murdered three innocent civilians on the campus of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City and at Village Shalom. Our tight-knit community was left shaken and grief-stricken.

Unfortunately, levels of antisemitism in the US have risen 305% in the decade since (2014-2022). In response, JCRB|AJC is hosting our region’s first-ever Summit on Combating Antisemitism — Driving Out Darkness in the Heartland.

While we cannot undo the past, we can educate others, provide resources to allied institutions, and aim to fight antisemitism together. The Summit will include a Unity Seder in the evening on April 15th and a day-long Symposium on April 16th, featuring AJC CEO Ted Deutch as our keynote speaker among other speakers. Guests are welcome to attend either or both events.

Unity Seder: Monday, April 15, 5:30PM-8:00PM

Symposium: Tuesday, April 16, 8:30AM-4:30PM
