Prof. Jim Loeffler Publishes Op-Ed with Forward

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

In response to the new presidential Executive Order on antisemitism, Jim Loeffler has provided commentary on NPR and wrote an op-ed for Forward.  In his op-ed, Jim argues that “ the highly conflicting responses to President Trump’s executive order on anti-Semitism highlight a fundamental, century-old tension within the American Jewish community about the role of civil rights law in protecting Jews: Do we want the government to treat American Jews as a vulnerable minority group requiring specific anti-discrimination protection? Or are Jews better off seeking equal citizenship as part of the white majority, with no special protection?” For more from Jim, check out the links below:
