"First Person" piece on "Anti-Semitism in the Search for Peace and Justice," a c
"First Person" piece on "Anti-Semitism in the Search for Peace and Justice," a conference held Oct. 3 at the University of Maine at Augusta. Organizer Karen D'Andrea called the meeting's purpose to address "left-wing anti-Semitism" in Maine, which she called pervasive. Despite some exploration of the idea, little evidence was given by anyone in attendance. Some suggested that left-wing opposition to Israeli policies toward Palestinians could mask something darker. Speakers included Howard Solomon, Scholar in Residence in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Collection of the Jean Byers Sampson Center of Diversity at the University of Southern Maine (USM); Rabbi William Leffler of Kennebunkport; Stephen Wessler, director of USM's Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence; and Rabbi Susan Carvutto of Augusta.
