Video - American Liberal Jews: Strong Concern about Anti-Semitism, Strong Support of Israel but Less for under 60s

(Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Dr. Irwin J. Mansdorf - An ongoing research project on American Jewry focused this time on politically liberal Jews.

The writer is a clinical psychologist and a fellow at the Jerusalem Center.
