There will be three 4-hour sessions offered. Each session begins with a 3-hour highly interactive and conversive course geared toward criminal justice personnel including police, prosecutors, judges, communications, corrections, victim advocates, and other administrative roles. The last hour will provide an introduction to Judaism and contemporary antisemitism, a tour of a synagogue, and discussion of the importance of reporting hate crimes.
