Description

Among the troubling phenomenon to which we are witness at this most difficult time of COVID, is the appearance of anti-Semitic attitudes and actions – hearkening back to medieval accusations of blood libels well poisonings, and up to contemporary anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist rhetoric, Jews have often borne the blame of plagues which affected their host societies (even as they themselves were afflicted with black plague, cholera, or today coronavirus in equal, or sometimes greater, numbers).
