Jew-hatred, also known as antisemitism, makes us all feel confused and helpless. It doesn’t have to be that way. Our Founder, Marnie Fienberg, speaks about ways to empower your group through joy and pride in our Jewish heritage, with discussions including:
- Part of your Passover preparation programming.
- Ideas for becoming an “Interfaith Ambassador.”
- Learning about the American antisemitism experience and how we can fight back as individuals.
Marnie is an engaging speaker in-person and virtually and has spoken to many Jewish and interfaith groups across the United States and Canada, including multiple Jewish Community Centers, Jewish Federations, and more than 30 synagogues. Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), Women’s League of Conservative Judaism and the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs have all featured 2 for Seder programs at the national level.
ADL Kulanu Program Featured Speaker
Marnie is proud to have been a featured speaker on being a “Changemaker for good” through ADL’s national synagogue engagement program, Kulanu this August 2023.
Congregations participating in Kulanu have tapped Marnie to bring her dynamic and interactive presentation, “Talking About Antisemitism -Encouraging Allies through Experiences and Education” to their communities – virtually or in person. See the testimonial below for details of an in person presentation.
I wanted to share a formal thank you for being with us on Erev Shavuot, on behalf of our staff, clergy and congregants.
It was so wonderful to work with you leading up to the ADL Kulanu Shavout program and to spend the in person time together this past weekend. Your “Fighting Antisemitism” keynote was excellent and a perfect complement to the Kulanu program. You helped us get our feet off the ground for this work and we are so grateful for that. We feel proud of the work we’re doing on antisemitism and elated to have a new partner on the path ahead.
“It’s been more than three years since the Pittsburgh Shooting, but every time there’s a shooting or an attack on a Jewish person, I feel like I’m instantly transported back to that day. For a moment, I feel helpless, isolated and afraid. But that’s not the case. The Jewish people have amazing neighbors of all faiths and there are small but powerful actions I take to empower myself and those around me.
I’m looking forward to sharing these ideas with you, especially when your group is preparing for my favorite holiday – Passover!”
