Long-term Training Programs

ENCATE develops and implements long-term training programs to equip educators with profound and nuanced academic knowledge, and to enable them to recognize and respond to various manifestations of antisemitism.

Current Forms of Antisemitism 2021

Between April 20 and July 24, 2021, KIgA e.V., the Center for Research on Antisemitism and ENCATE organized the first Certificate Program on Current Forms of Antisemitism.

Uncovering the roots of antisemitism and linking its winding history to its manifestation today helped fellow practitioners tackle this issue in its varied articulations. We translated this ambitious aim into twelve two-hour webinars with renowned experts and hand-picked participants from ten different countries, primarily educators working in antisemitism prevention. The distance-learning program covered such topics as antisemitism definitions, Israel-related antisemitism, online hate, conspiracy theories, and intersectionality.  (See this post for details).
