Israelis don’t have to share American Jews’ anxiety over a Trump presidency, but some are acknowledging it, as Jane Eisner found out.
If we in the diaspora are to make common cause with Israel, then Israel must reciprocate on an issue of utmost importance to the diaspora, Jane Eisner writes.
What are we scared of when we are scared of the “alt-right”? Fear that its odious ideas will become normal, writes Jane Eisner. So it’s time to stop it.
Jane Eisner pens a plea to Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, right now the most powerful Jews in America: The presidential campaign unleashed a surge of anti-Semitism. Please don’t make it worse.
A Breitbart writer alleges that the Forward smeared Stephen Bannon by explaining how he can support Israel and still be associated with anti-Semitism. Wrong, says Jane Eisner.
Unless Jews denounce hatred from the right as loudly as hatred from the left, we risk losing allies and diminishing our moral standing. That’s why the reaction to Steve Bannon is so telling, writes Jane Eisner
To the list of reasons why the media misjudged the tidal wave that swept Donald Trump into the presidency, add this: Good character no longer counts.
The question before liberal American Jews — and that is most American Jews — is whether we still have a place in Donald Trump’s America, Jane Eisner writes.
If Jews feel anxious about today’s vote — anxiety being embedded in our DNA — for once, we have good reason, writes Jane Eisner. This election has been full of ugly surprises.
Jane Eisner went to the movies to escape the ugliness of today’s politics. Thanks to a strong couple helped by two Jewish lawyers, she found the inspiration she needed.
