Opinion | When the Right Pushes Fake Jews; New York Times

Through seven decades of life — as a Jew living in Philadelphia, New York, Connecticut, and Northern Virginia — I’ve never felt personally threatened by anti-Semitism. I’m keenly aware of its history in Europe, where my family came from, and I lost relatives to it, but I’ve felt safe here.

I still feel safe, physically, even when I venture south and west. But as this New York Times article demonstrates, religious intolerance threatens the fabric of who we are as a nation. “We can pull together and rediscover some shared sense of purpose, Or we can…rage, rage, rage against the mysterious other,” Jonathan Weisman writes. — MHP
