If you are concerned about the increase in anti-Semitic incidents in our world, please join us at Northminster to learn from The Marist School’s Brendan Murphy about the long, tragic history of anti-Semitism. This two-day, four-hour multimedia program will explore in depth how both governments and religious communities have targeted those of the Jewish faith over the centuries, along with hopeful developments in the fight against anti-Semitism.
Mr. Murphy has been a history teacher at Marist School for 29 years. He was recently awarded the Outstanding Educator Award from the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, the Distinguished Service Award from the Georgia Independent School Association, the 2017 Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Abe Goldstein Human Relations Award and Marist School’s Faber-McKinley-Stadler Award. In 2013-2014, he was awarded Marist School’s Goizueta Chair of Excellence. In 2009, he was named Educator of the Year by University of Notre Dame; and in 2009 and 2016, he was named Georgia Outstanding Educator of the Year by the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust. He also has been named a Mandel Fellow by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and a Lerner Fellow by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous.
