The Massachusetts Antisemitism Synagogue Task Force (MAST) will present “Are Schools Promoting Antisemitism? Unpacking K-12 Ethnic Studies & Social Studies Curricula,” on Sunday, March 10, at 8 p.m. (EST).

The free Zoom program will feature Elina Kaplan, president, and co-founder of the Alliance for Constructive Ethnic Studies (ACES), which works to remove political agendas from ethnic studies.

Kaplan has managed nonprofits for more than a decade, including the social-services division of one of California’s largest affordable housing organizations, supervising social services and cultural programs for tens of thousands of residents of varying income and ethnic groups.

She served as chief program officer for the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto, Calif., as well as on boards of over a dozen Jewish organizations. Kaplan holds an MBA from Stanford University and a Bachelor of Science in mathematics and computer science from Duke University.
