Peter Beinart has been getting a lot of attention since writing an essay for the New York Review of Books titled “The Failure of the American Jewish Establishment.” It is, without a doubt, one of the most talked about articles on Israel written in recent years, and it has divided American Jews along ideological, philosophical and theological lines.

Not wanting to pass up on an opportunity to engage the community in a good debate, Rob Eshman of The Jewish Journal invited Beinart to town to speak last Monday at Temple Beth Am. The above video is the first of nine. You can watch the rest at Bloggish.
