How to Respond to Anti-Semitic Attacks--This Week's Column

 6/23/2021--My column this week in the Pennsylvania Capital-Star was scheduled to be about how to respond to anti-Semitic attacks. Before it appeared, the Jewish Federation issued a warning about harrassment and a possible attack this month in Pittsburgh. I was unaware of these incidents, but of course they sharpen the need for a response. We can all wear a kippah. This is from the column:

Anti-Semitism threatens us all. We are all Jews.

Just as police violence against persons of color is not just violence against them but against us all, just so here. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., taught, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
