Have you hated a Jew today?

Oak Park Chronicles

It’s having a new heyday.

Anti-Semitism is having yet another of its semi-annual flare-ups. It’s a disease that will never be eradicated. On Tuesday, Rabbi David Wolpe said on Twitter: “I remember when hating Jews wasn’t chic.” His memory is better than mine. You don’t have to be a Nazi to be a Jew-hater. I recently heard a university administrator describe a woman’s voice as “too Jewy.” Anti-Semitism is an equal-opportunity employer.

Weinberger’s translation of “I, a Jew” in Borges’ Selected
Viking, 1999.]
