Fresh on the heels of the midterm elections, the JCC Greater
Boston Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons Cool Conversations series examines the political landscape in America. On issues ranging from the economy and health care to immigration and the future of the Supreme Court, candidates are facing a deeply polarized electorate in a charged political environment. We present an analysis of the election outcome with two of the brightest political minds in the country.

Jonathan Weisman, Panelist
Jonathan Weisman is the deputy Washington editor of The New York Times. He discusses his latest book, “(((Semitism))): Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump.” The book chronicles the rise of bigotry, anti-Semitism and racism unleashed in the age of Trump and details the creation of the alt-right.

Jane Eisner, Panelist
Jane Eisner, a pioneer in journalism, became editor-in-chief of The Forward in 2008, the first woman to hold the position at the influential Jewish national news organization. Eisner’s editorials have won national and regional awards, and she is a frequent commentator on radio and television.

Barbara Kellerman, Moderator
Leading the conversation is Barbara Kellerman, the James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School. She is the founding executive director of the school’s Center for Public Leadership and author and editor of several books, including “Professionalizing Leadership.”
