In this week’s Forward Reporters’ Roundtable, host Josh Nathan-Kazis speaks with Washington correspondent Nathan Guttman about the New Israel Fund’s new guidelines that restrict funding to organizations that accept Israel as a Jewish homeland. Then, staff writer Gal Beckerman discusses his new book, “When They Come for Us, We’ll Be Gone: The Epic Struggle to Save Soviet Jewry” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) — specifically about this excerpt, dealing with Meir Kahane’s tumultuous reign over the Soviet Jewry movement.
