Jonathan-1   He heads the Anti-Defamation League at a time of rising anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and general dim-witted malevolence, largely unopposed by a White House that is dishearteningly different from his time there as special assistant to President Obama and director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation. With featured musical performers Gregoio Uribe and Solange Pratt; we’ve never needed them more.
