ADL must listen to its critics

Written by Charles Jacobs on July 31, 2022

After a barrage of criticism over its failure to deal with the surge of anti-Zionist Jew-hatred, the ADL — the Jewish people’s “defense agency” — finally chose to respond to charges that it had embraced partisanship over its nonpartisan mission.  It took a column by North Carolina parent Kathryn Wolf published in the left-leaning Forward, whose audience the ADL cannot afford to ignore, laying out an instance where ADL erroneously warned of parents’ statements at school board meetings (on COVID measures and other irrelevances) to elicit a refutation by the ADL’s senior vice president for policy, Eileen Hershenov.
