As a 50-year-old Jew in America, I never would have imagined that a former president of the United States would openly dine with individuals who are leading voices of antisemitism, white nationalism and hate. Nor would I imagine that the Fourth of July parade in the heavily Jewish Chicago suburb where I grew up would be terrorized by a barrage of gunfire. Or that reasonable disputes over public policy would disintegrate into social media brawls with memes depicting devil horns and other antisemitic tropes on a local leader who is Jewish. That’s just a glimpse of a year in which our Jewish communities are experiencing an unprecedented surge in antisemitism.
