The aftermath of the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
finds that the attacker has contributed to the feeling of dread even beyond the obvious horrors: One year after the mass shooting, many American Jews feel unsafe displaying symbols of their Jewishness, including yarmulkes and Star of David jewelry. It’s not just the shooting. It’s a general feeling of anti-Semitism that has risen during the Trump era, the kind that has also appeared at White Nationalist rallies where participants yell “Jews will not replace us.” A study released by the American Jewish Committee this week found that nearly 1 in 3 American Jews fears wearing something that might identify their Judaism. 84% of respondents said anti- Semitism has increased over the past five years.

The whole thing of intolerance of a culture is illogical to me. I judge individuals on their actions, not how they dress or where they pray. Every culture produces arseholes (or worse). Being religious does not automatically make you a good or bad person. I see a few orthodox Jewish families around near where I work and that is fine with me except I think their children should get more choice about whether they carry on that tradition. The best definition of 'tradition' I have seen is 'denial of change'.
