Community invited to discuss anti-Semitism


Anti-Semitism still exists throughout the world, and Billings is no exception. With that in mind, Not in Our Town Billings invites the community to join the live, online discussion “Overcoming Anti-Semitism in Billings,” presented via Zoom from 6:30-8 p.m. on Thursday.

The discussion will feature Erik Uriarte, director of religious programming at Congregation Beth Aaron, who will share insights into the practices and history of the Jewish community and discuss the subtle and not-so subtle ways anti-Semitism inserts itself into media and our communities.
