Pence to Speak at Antisemitism Conference at Grove City College

GROVE CITY, Pa. – Former Vice President Mike Pence will deliver the keynote address at The Institute for Faith & Freedom’s “Confronting Antisemitism” conference at Grove City College.

Pence will speak at 11 a.m. April 11 in the Crawford Hall auditorium.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to hear from Vice President Mike Pence on this critically important topic. He has been very vocal in confronting antisemitism, and we are pleased to welcome him to campus,” GCC President Paul J. McNulty said. 

“Serving in the Trump administration, he was part of significant U.S. actions that brokered the first peace deal in the Middle East in 25 years, the Abraham Accords. In 2018, the administration moved the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” McNulty said. “Although the scope of this conference is broader than the nation of Israel, Vice President Pence and his leadership throughout his career make him an excellent choice to speak this year.”

Pence served in Congress and as governor of Indiana before serving as the nation’s vice president from 2017 to 2021 under President Donald Trump. He spoke at GCC’s commencement in 2017.

In addition to Pence, the conference will feature a diverse lineup of speakers confronting antisemitism, including Rabbi Dr. Meir Y. Soloveichik, senior rabbi of Congregation Shearith Israel and one of the world’s preeminent Jewish thinkers and educators. 

Other leaders who will address the conference are Paul Packer, former chairman of the United States Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad; Michael Medved, talk radio and podcast host and New York Times bestselling author; Naomi Schaefer Riley, writer and senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute; Devorah Goldman, Tikvah Visiting Fellow with the Ethics and Public Policy Center; and George Weigel, Catholic theologian, papal biographer and syndicated columnist.

GCC faculty members Paul Kengor, professor of political science and IFF senior director and chief academic fellow, and Carl Trueman, professor of biblical and religious studies, will also speak.
