Jews & Money: An Interactive Conversation about History, Stereotypes, and Personal Relationships to Money


Event Cancelled

The Jewish Communal Leadership Program at the University of Michigan School of Social Work is hosting an interactive program on the topic of Jews and Money. We’ll explore how antisemitism, privilege, poverty, and philanthropy have impacted the relationship between Jews and money, especially as it relates to Jews at the University of Michigan and our personal relationships to money. Guest speakers, engaging activities, and small group discussion will help attendees understand the myths and realities of Jewish wealth and identify antisemitic stereotypes related to money. People of all ages, backgrounds, and religions are encouraged to attend. Students and community members welcome.

Cosponsored by Trotter Multicultural Center, Michigan Hillel, School of Social Work Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Frankel Center for Judaic Studies
