A colleague complained to me about “that Jew doctor”


When I was a new clinical social worker, I joined a feminist support group for therapists. One of the members was sharing a story of her perceived oppression by a doctor. She kept referring to him as “that Jew doctor.” I was speechless and stunned to hear such antisemitism in this setting. Thankfully, one of my non-Jewish colleagues stopped her, and called her on the hate talk. It was the consensus of the group that this was unacceptable. I don’t know how I would have handled this if it were not for my colleague speaking up.
