  • Kerry Vies for Jewish Vote

    By Ron Kampeas

  • Europe Taking Action on Anti-Semitism

    By Abraham H. Foxman

    May 6, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    There are, indeed, some things to cheer about. If we compare today to where matters stood a year ago, a significant difference is the willingness of European leaders to acknowledge there is a problem. Denial is out.

    French President Jacques Chirac, after more than two years of...

    By David A. Lehrer

    May 6, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    April 1, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    To many of the 700 Jewish students on the seven Claremont Colleges campuses, it was their first direct encounter with anti-Semitism, and they reacted with rage, fear, confusion and a new sense of solidarity.

    By Marvin Hier

    February 19, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Mel Gibson's film is nothing less then a frontal assault and a collective indictment of the entire Jewish community during the time of Jesus.

    By Paul Kujawsky

    January 15, 2004 | 7:00 pm
