Soviet Antisemitism

We are witnessing a rise of anti-Israel rhetoric in the United States today, particularly among the progressive left, but these ideas, slogans and tropes are far from modern. To investigate their origins, scholar Izabella Tabarovsky suggests we look to Soviet propaganda created nearly 50 years ago.

Join us on April 11 as Tabarovsky presents her research on how Soviet anti-Zionist disinformation campaigns and propaganda are being reproduced by many of today's young American progressives. Understanding this history can help us rethink strategies to counter contemporary antisemitism and anti-Zionism.

Izabella Tabarovsky is a scholar of Soviet antizionism and contemporary antisemitism. She is a senior advisor with the Kennan Institute at the Wilson Center; a fellow with ISGAP and the London Centre for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism; and a contributing writer to Tablet. Her writings have appeared in Fathom, Sapir, Quillette, and Newsweek, among others, as well as in several essay collections, including Jewish Priorities: 65 Proposals for the Future of Our People (Wicked Son);The Rebirth of Antisemitism in the 21st Century: From the Academic Boycott Campaign to the Mainstream (Routledge); and Mapping the New Left Antisemitism: The Fathom Essays (Routledge).
