Please join us on Wednesday, November 7, when Dr. Tom W. Smith will present "Antisemitism in Contemporary America." A reception will follow. The evening is made possible by the Center for Judaic Studies Frances and Irving Seliger Memorial Endowment Fund and is co-sponsored by the American Studies Program, the Humanities Institute, the Department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages, and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center.

This lecture is held in remembrance of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, when the Nazis orchestrated a pogrom during which German Jews were humiliated, beaten, and murdered and Jewish homes, businesses, hospitals, synagogues, and schools were looted and destroyed.

Guest speaker, Senior Fellow Tom W. Smith, directs NORC at the University of Chicago's Center for the Study of Politics and Society. He is also Director of the General Social Survey.
