In October 2016, on the eve of Yom Kippur -- the holiest, most solemn day of the Jewish calendar -- a cemetery belonging to Temple Beth Shalom of Florida, NY was desecrated with vile, anti-Semitic iconographic symbology.  Michael Melasky tells the story of this event, its immediate and long-term aftermath and the enormous effect it had on the entire community.  The presentation leads to a broad-based conversation on hate speech, offering proactive strategies on how to deal with this behavior.
