In this video, learn from Bari Weiss, a staff writer and editor for the Opinion Section of The New York Times, who has become one of the loudest voices in the fight against antisemitism. Tragically, antisemitism, which she calls a “thought virus” hit close to home in 2018 when 11 Jews were murdered at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh; the synagogue where Weiss celebrated her Bat Mitzvah. Weiss is the author of the 2019 book How to Fight Anti-Semitism. The Jerusalem Post named her the seventh most influential Jew in the world and she regularly appears on The View, Morning Joe and Bill Maher. In this episode of Game Changers, we speak to Weiss and learn from someone who knows how to survive and fight antisemitism.
