Fighting Jew-hatred requires recognising its persistent appeal:
Recently a well-educated, accomplished man, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company – one of America’s most successful corporate entities – attended a seminar I gave on antisemitism. After my presentation, he raised his hand and, with a perplexed tone in his voice, observed: “Jews are so smart, so accomplished… How is it that they have not been able to solve this problem of antisemitism?”
I told him that his question, sincere as it certainly was, was aimed in the wrong direction. He should not be asking the victim of racial prejudice to solve that problem. He should be asking the perpetrator.
On Jan. 5, at the rally and march against antisemitism held in New York, I found myself walking next to a woman who carried a sign: “This Catholic Hates Antisemitism.” When I thanked her for being there, she responded: “It’s more our problem than yours.”
The purveyors of this hate and hostility should be the ones who bear the onus of having to resolve the issue. It is the rapist and not the person who has been raped who should have to supply the solution. Suffice it to say, antisemitism is a problem for all of us.
There is no easy solution to prejudice because it is an irrational sentiment. Prejudice: the etymology of the word itself is testimony to its irrationality: to pre-judge, to decide what a person’s qualities are long before meeting the person him or herself.
To put it more colloquially, the purveyor of prejudice encounters the stereotype even when the actual person is still 500 metres away. In other words, stereotypes exist independently of an individual’s actions.

More than 150 artworks entered into this year's B'nai B'rith Jewish Youth Art Competition were on display at the Glen Eira Arts Complex.
At the opening ceremony held on Sunday 4th August at the gallery, the Mayor of Glen Eira, Cr Jamie Hyams, praised the quality of the work by the primary, secondary and tertiary students aged 11-18.
"The art competition encouraged youths into healthy activities that build self-esteem through artistic expression," he said. "It creates a concrete and valued stepping-stone on an artistic pathway for students who aspire to a career in the arts."
The Morrie Gold Memorial Prize, presented to the overall winner of the competition, was won by Mount Scopus Memorial College student Ella Hermann for her work - painted on a large tree trunk - titled Falling Into Place.
The Thalia Hakin Prize, sponsored by Gandel Philanthropy, was won by Leibler Yavneh College student Raphael Brykman. The award was established last year in honour of 10-year-old Thalia, a student at Beth Rivkah Ladies College, who was killed in the Bourke Street rampage in January 2017.
The best work on a Jewish theme, sponsored by B'nai B'rith Victoria, was won by Gabriella Steinberg, who is currently in Israel and was presented with her award via smart-phone connection by B'nai B'rith Victoria president Dr Benny Monheit.
