Scholars-in-Residence: All the News That’s Fit to Debate


Two prominent journalists get into a heated debate about Israel's direction, all part of a special scholar-in-residence program at Melrose B'nai Israel Emanu-El.

Of course you’ll have an informative and entertaining evening when you have such journalism notables as Jonathan Tobin (left), senior online editor of Commentary Magazine, and J.J. Goldberg (right), editor-at-large of the Forward, take on “Arguing for the Sake of Heaven? The American Jewish Debate About Israel.” It took place as part of a scholar-in-residence program at Melrose B’nai Israel Emanu-El in Elkins Park, also featuring separate lectures by the two journalists before the Saturday evening debate, which was moderated by Rabbi Howard A. Addison.
