An Insider Briefing for Tampa Jewish Leadership

Edwin Black answers your questions about Iran’s Nuclear Program, Antisemitism in America, Israel and Palestinians, the state of American Jewry, Zionism and Judaism, plus the hot-button issues of the day.

By invitation only.

Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic Democratic politicians, and others allied with anti-Israel and racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Even now, they are mapping the names and addresses of Jewish organizations and individuals. The label “Zionist” is becoming a trigger for exclusion and retaliation. Is this a prelude to a new Kishinev, a new Farhud, a new Kristallnacht in America? Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and civil rights attorney and Holocaust refugee Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

On International Farhud Day, Edwin explores the deadly Arab-Nazi alliance that stretched from Paris to Palestine. Conference of Presidents leader Malcolm Hoenlein and HARIF-UK co-founder Lyn Julius join Edwin.

On Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Edwin asks: Can it happen again? What would it take—and when? International Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander, Wiesenthal Center Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper, and civil rights attorney and Holocaust refugee Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

A major lawsuit against Ben & Jerry’s and Unilever for their anti-Jewish boycott has been filed by the Israeli franchisee.

Ben & Jerry’s–Israel president Avi Zinger and his attorneys Marc Zell, Alyza Lewin, and Nathan Lewin join Edwin with exclusive details.

Finally, a Jewish legal team has been assembled to tackle the most egregious and criminal cases of antisemitism. Former prosecutor and tough-as-nails litigator Brad Gerstman and experienced StandWithUs Legal Director Yael Lerman will take on the hatemongers and perpetrators that the criminal justice system won’t. They will aggressively litigate against bad guys until justice is done. “We will follow them to the ends of the Earth,” vows Gerstman. Streetwise, tough, aggressive, determined—meet the Jewish Legal Avengers.

Third-grade students, including Jewish kids, at Watkins Elementary School in Washington DC were allegedly instructed by a staff member to reenact scenes from the Holocaust, including gassing, digging ditches for bodies, and shootings. Antisemitic remarks were also reported. What the hell has happened? What the hell is happening? Is this a mere school mishap to be regretted … or criminal child abuse to be prosecuted? A stand will must now be taken. Famed civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin, Washington DC JCRC associate director Guila Siegel, and StandWithUs legal director Yael Lerman join Edwin.

 

Duke University settled formal complaints of grave antisemitism just last year. Community leaders are astonished—and mobilized—now that formal recognition of the Students Supporting Israel chapter has been summarily vetoed by student government leadership. SSI president Ilan Sinelinkov and top concerned voices join Edwin.

American Jews are being increasingly afflicted by the deliberate scheduling of Jewish policy issues on sabbaths and holidays—boycotts, anti-Israel measures, pro-BDS resolutions, and academic requirements. The Burlington City Council set the abuse standard when it took up an anti-Israel resolution during the Days of Awe—just two days before Yom Kippur. Civil rights champion attorney Nathan Lewin and Simon Wiesenthal Center associate dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper join Edwin.
