Late August’s surge of riots and protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, has stirred much political debate. In that debate, we should not overlook one incident during the rioting that reflects one aspect of the larger Black Lives Matter organized movement: Graffiti in front of a...

I blogged about Nick Cannon’s apology for his anti-Semitic comments. I noted that quite a few black people lashed out at him for the apology.

Cannon also noticed the backlash. I guess he now realizes you cannot please everyone.

However, Cannon told Fast Company that he “can’t wait to sit down with” rabbis who contacted him about his remarks. He wants...

Against the backdrop of a rising tide of anti-Semitic incidents across the country and the failure of many mainstream Jewish organizations to condemn anti-Semitism emanating from the left, communities of color, or Islamists, I’ve joined a group of Jewish-American millennials in founding a brand-new non-profit organization called HaShevet.

Look, I’m all for free speech, mainly because it outs the racists and bigots so I know who to avoid.

But Louis Farrakhan’s racist and anti-Semitic views came out a long time ago and he needs to go away.

We have seen this movie before. Whenever there is a high-profile death of a Black person in the U.S. at the hands of local police, anti-Israel activists try to hijack the anger and redirect it at Israel.
