Host Simon Spungin is joined by Anshel Pfeffer and Dina Kraft to discuss reactions – in Israel and the United States – to the heinous murder of 11 Jewish Americans in a Pittsburgh synagogue: Is the United States still safe for Jews; why are American Jews getting increasingly angry, with their own president and with Israeli leaders; and why are some people – on both sides of the political spectrum – reticent about calling the attack anti-Semitic?
