Abe Foxman is retiring as head of the Anti Defamation League, the ADL. He leaves at a time when anti-semitism is at a historic low in the United States. Of course, Foxman is a Holocaust survivor and, as such, has always been a vanguard against the appearance of anti-Semitism. But I, for one, would like to congratulate Mr. Foxman on a job well done. Because of him and people like him, you are more likely to encounter a racist in your day to day life than an anti-semite. In the South, you’re more likely to find support and well wishes when people find out you’re Jewish than anti-Semitism….at least where I am. It’s a good time in history to be a Jewish American.
