Every day, it seems, our headlines include shocking incidences of hate speech, antisemitic graffiti, conspiracy theories and assaults on the visibly Orthodox. Journalism has an important role to play in reporting, analyzing, interrogating and debating these phenomena. Jodi Rudoren will discuss the challenges that journalists – and especially Jewish journalists – face in covering antisemitism. Where are the lines between calling out hatred and platforming it? How do we balance coverage of these threats and stereotypes with those targeting more vulnerable minorities? Why is this happening in the first place — and how scared should Jews be?

Jodi Rudoren is a veteran reporter, editor and digital innovator. She currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Forward, America’s leading voice in Jewish journalism.
