Historian and author Gil Troy joins JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan Tobin to talk about how toxic theories about the past are fueling anti-Semitism and undermining Jewish identity and support for Israel.

The two discuss how partisanship has given a pass to the spread of destructive ideas like critical race theory and intersectionality and how such ideologies give a permission slip to anti-Semitism. They also speak about how battles over history are impacting Jewish identity in the United States and ties with Israel and the role that Zionism and important stories – such as that of Natan Sharansky — should play in Jewish life.
