In tandem with the rise of anti-Muslim bigotry, the last few weeks have seen a shocking number of anti-Semitic expressions both in America and around the world. Welton will be joined this week by Rabbi Brad Hirschfeld of Clal, The National Jewish Center of Learning and Leadership, who will help us put this rise in anti-Semitism in context, and discuss ways that faith leaders – and the rest of us – can help counter it, and bigotry against all religious minorities.

Finally, Welton leaves us with some thoughts on the passing of actor and comedy legend Robin Williams. Having written extensively on the issue of depression and suicide, Welton shares his perspective on what each of us should consider before presuming to understand the suffering of another.
