Ira Forman joins us to talk about his work as Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism for the U.S. Department of State.

Throughout his career Forman has spoken and written extensively on Jewish history and public policy, and today he discusses the reported global rise in anti-Semitic sentiment and activity.

Forman is speaking in Pittsburgh tonight at the Jewish Community Center’s Katz Auditorium in Squirrel Hill.
