Zionism and Israel are hot button topics – in the media, politics and university campuses. What are the boundaries of criticizing Israel? When does (legitimate) criticism of Israel’s policies become anti-Semitism? Join Jeffrey Salkin, ADL director, for a  crucial conversation for living in today’s world.

Jeffrey Salkin is the New Jersey director of the ADL – the Anti-Defamation League.  Since its founding in 1913, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has been the nation's premier civil rights/human relations agency. It fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all.

Jeff is a noted Reform rabbi and activist whose writings have appeared in numerous publications. He has served in leadership positions within the Reform movement, Zionist organizations, and international Jewish organizations. He is one of American Jewry’s most quoted rabbis, and brings erudition, activism, and intellectual rigor to his work at ADL.

He is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking book on bar and bat mitzvah: Putting God On The Guest List: How To Reclaim The Spiritual Meaning of Your Child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah. It is an American Jewish bestseller, and it is published by Jewish Lights. He has written many other books – on such topics as Israel, spirituality, interfaith relations, and the role of men in Jewish life. His most recent book, which is already in its second printing, is Text Messages: A Torah Commentary for Teens
