‘Top Story,’ Ep. 16: Ruth Wisse: Jews Face ‘the Most Uneven Fight in Human History’

Author and academic Ruth Wisse joins JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan S. Tobin in a discussion about understanding anti-Semitism, the revival of Yiddish and her new memoir.


The two discuss Wisse’s analysis of how anti-Semitism is being legitimized and why so much of the Jewish community is incapable of responding effectively to this challenge. They also delve into how academia has become the springboard for so much Jew-hatred, why anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism, how leftists are using Yiddish to attack Israel, what writer had the greatest impact on her career and the importance of Jewish learning.

“Top Story” also airs on JBS-TV on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.; and on Thursdays at 11 a.m. and at 5:30 p.m.
