America has never had the national reckoning that we need over the August 2017 events in Charlottesville, and this week’s synagogue hostage crisis in Colleyville, TX, reminds us that more than four years later, Jews are still unsafe.

In this episode, Hartman Senior Fellow and The Atlantic contributor James Loeffler, who spent a month chronicling the civil trial against Charlottesville’s white supremacist organizers, speaks with Yehuda Kurtzer about what the trial of white supremacists means for the Jews, strategies to fight antisemitism, the recent events in Colleyville, and the American Jewish relationship with the justice system.
