What Anti-Semitism Sounds Like—National Tell a Story Day

Storytelling is an ancient practice used to pass knowledge from one generation to the next. It’s a way we share lessons learned and experiences that inform all of us.

On Saturday, our nation celebrates Tell a Story Day. And in preparation of that event, we’re sharing one man’s story about his first encounter with anti-Semitism. It tells us what it sounded like in his youth, and helps us understand what that felt like—and still feels like today.

Because anti-Semitism isn’t just some abstract idea. It’s real. And it hurts.
