What Does the Trial of White Supremacists Mean for the Jews?

We have never had the national reckoning that we need over the August 2017 events in Charlottesville. Our national conversation has since devolved into a contest of warring slogans; we cannot even agree on definitions of racism and antisemitism. Hartman Institute Senior Fellow James Loeffler spent a month chronicling the civil trial against Charlottesville’s white supremacist organizers, which concluded just before Thanksgiving.

Join us for this special recording of the Identity/Crisis podcast where host Yehuda Kurtzer and James Loeffler will discuss what really happened at the trial, what it portends for the state of antisemitism, and what it means for the future of the Jews in America.

Read James Loeffler’s recent article in The Atlantic, Charlottesville Was Only a Preview.
