Presidents Conference, Israel Apartheid Week


In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis talks with Forward Washington correspondent Nathan Guttman about the odd collection of groups that make up the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. Then, with Israel Apartheid Week in full swing, Forward fellow Naomi Zeveloff and David A.M. Wilensky, editor of New Voices, stop by to discuss the new tenor of on-campus debates about Israel and Palestine. Finally, editor Jane Eisner drops in to give a little historical perspective to Republican claims that there is a ‘war on religion’ in the United States.
