Interviewed by Jeffrey Goldberg
- This event has passed.
On October 27, 2018, the synagogue where Bari Weiss—an Op-Ed staff editor and writer for the New York Times—became a bat mitzvah was the site of the deadliest attack on Jews in this country’s history. For most Americans, the massacre at Tree of Life came as a total shock. But to those who have been paying attention, it was only a more violent, extreme expression of the broader trend that has been sweeping parts of the world for the past two decades.
No longer the exclusive province of the far right and far left, anti-semitism finds a home in identity politics and the reaction against identity politics, in the renewal of “America first” isolationism and the rise of one-world socialism. An ancient hatred increasingly allowed into modern political discussion, anti-semitism has been migrating toward the mainstream in dangerous ways, amplified by social media and a culture of conspiracy that threatens us all.
How to Fight Anti-Semitism makes a powerful case for renewing Jewish and liberal values to guide us through this uncertain moment. Not just for the sake of America’s Jews, but for the sake of America. Weiss will be interviewed by Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic. Book signing to follow.
