Reporters’ Roundtable: Advancing Human Rights; Syrian Jewish Scandal; Kabbalah Center in the News
In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis speaks with staff writer Gal Beckerman about a new human rights organization that is being launched by Robert Bernstein, the Human Rights Watch founder who split with that organization last year — thanks, in part, to what he sees as the group’s disproportionate scrutiny of open societies like Israel. Josh is joined by Forward Fellow Joy Resmovits to talk about a new scandal rocking the Syrian Jewish community. And in the new segment, “The Best Jewish Story That Didn’t Make the Paper,” the panel discusses why the Kabbalah Centre, a religious organization whose most-famous member is Madonna, is once again in the news.
