The shooting at a synagogue in Poway, California last weekend was undeniably tragic. But it is hard to tell if it is a symptom of a growing problem in the U.S. – one with centuries of history behind it. Anti-Semitism is often a sign of a society under pressure or in decline. While Jews were widely persecuted in Medieval Europe, …

The Hezitorial on Hatred The historical perspective is unequivocal in its telling. Enslaved in Egypt, then returning to their homeland only to be forced from their land by one conqueror after another. Jews suffered and yet thrived.

Anti-Semitism thrives and is unleashed, among other things, when hate is fostered and allowed to go unchecked.  But anti-Semites rarely need an “excuse” to do so. Following the attack on the Pittsburgh synagogue this week, many blame the current president and his rhetoric for that. Perhaps. However no less significant is when former president Clinton shared the stage with and …

Last month I went to a site of historical, cultural and religious significance literally in my own back yard, but which I’d not made time to get to.  I have wanted to go to the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem since it opened, and finally made the time.  The museum is significant in many ways; one of the things …

“Today, we see yet another example of how a disturbed person with a firearm can terrorize.  This man entered the Holocaust Museum, a place dedicated to remember the evil inflicted upon the Jewish people in World War II, with the intent to do violence.   It is disgusting to think about the children, whether they be visitors to our Capital from …
