In my weekly email this morning, I made an inaccurate statement.
I want to correct one statistic I shared in the American Jewish Committee's landmark study
detailing anti-Semitism in America today:
One of the insights in the AJC survey was the view the general public was willing to ascribe anti-Semitism to the two political parties. The poll revealed that 52% of Americans believed “some” or “a lot” of Republicans “hold anti-Semitic views” with 42% believing the same about Democrats.
I had originally stated they were the same percentages.
Most importantly, it is crucial that we understand that, taken as a whole, Americans are not anti-Semitic and actively oppose actions and vitriol directed at Jews.
