Dear readers,
Thanks so much to those who have read my commentary and contacted me personally to discuss the myriad issues the series frankly addresses (or does not address). Most of your personal contacts have touched on the growing open expressions of antisemitism, which has been largely ignored in the conferences I have attended. I have been asked if I have ever experienced open antisemitism in my life, and the answer is Yes -- for the first time. I had known this person for several years, and her remark occurred when she learned I was Jewish. Following this, in every presentation, I try to share that when the late President Kennedy recommended Catholic U to me as the setting to begin my social work education, I was taken aback. as I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family in Baltimore. Although I did not remain in DC after the president's death, I had an extraordinarily positive experience at CU, where all my views could be expressed openly and were treated with deep respect. To those who have reached out to me about this growing openness and the reasons they believe it is occurring, I deeply agree with you: Along with the other dibilitating "isms" threatening all we hold dear, I believe this "elephant in the room" -- growing in its danger -- should be -- I believe must be -- openly explored.
