In an interview for the New York Times he said, “My job as editor is talk about the things people are not willing to talk about.”
This was my first remote conversation. Unfortunately there were some technical issues with the recording, but I cleaned most of it up.
Jonathan and I discussed the relationship between American Jews and the state of Israel, the Kotel agreement, the rise of violent anti-Semitism in America, relations between Israel and America, anti-Zionism and much more.
