In early March 2019, Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s criticism of the Israeli lobby’s influence and allegations of private lobby power over Congress sparked allegations of anti-Semitism. What did Congresswoman Omar actually say? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi initiated a House Resolution to condemn Omar’s statements. What is anti-Semitism? Is criticism of the Israeli Lobby or the policies of Israel necessarily anti-Semitic?  Or as Washington Post columnist Paul Waldman observed, “Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has decided that the time has come for the House to rebuke Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for things she didn’t actually say, and ideas she didn’t actually express.” We’ll discuss this question while exploring generational divides on this issue among American Jews.
