After tweeting an excerpt from an editorial about the rise of fascist tendencies in the U.S., Jonathan Weisman, deputy Washington editor of The New York Times, found himself the target of the “alt-right.” He received a tidal wave of online hate, which forced him to face the startling state of American anti-Semitism.

On Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, we will learn from the research and personal experiences he shares in “(((Semitism))): Being Jewish in America in the Age of Trump.” Saturday evening, through a panel conversation with ADL Boston executive director Robert Trestan and ADL national chair Esta Epstein, moderated by Rabbi Elaine Zecher, we will consider our community’s recent and current responses to today’s anti-Semitism and the steps we can take going forward.
