On episode 32 of The Salon, we’re talking about why it’s so hard to talk civilly about the war in Gaza; why Kirsten Gillibrand’s revelations that some of her male colleagues in the Senate sexually harassed her are hardly surprising; what the Jewish community’s responsibility is to the African-American community in Ferguson, MO; and how to find inspiration this Jewish New Year.
Our panel includes:
*Lisa Goldman, Director of the Israel-Palestine Initiative at the New America Foundation;
*Marjorie Dove Kent, Executive Director of Jews For Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ);
*Rebecca Honig Friedman, Senior Manager of Original Programming at The Jewish Channel and Executive Producer of The Salon.
The Salon is hosted by Forward Editor-in-Chief Jane Eisner, with co-host Rachel Sklar, founder of Change the Ratio and TheLi.st.
