FRIDAY! Peter Beinart and Lily Greenberg Call: A Protest Resignation from the Biden Administration

This Friday: Peter Beinart and Lily Greenberg Call: A Protest Resignation from the Biden Administration

Join Jewish Currents editor-at-large Peter Beinart for a conversation with Lily Greenberg Call, an interior department staffer who became the first Jewish political appointee to resign from the Biden administration to protest its support of Israel’s assault on Gaza. Greenberg Call was a former AIPAC activist, and her journey away from this pro-Israel position illustrates the tectonic shift that is happening among young American Jews over Israel and the Palestinian struggle for freedom.
