A new executive order signed by President Trump on Wednesday could change the way that federal anti-discrimination laws are applied in cases of alleged hate incidents against Jewish Americans. The order instructs the government to “consider” the definition of anti-Semitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. The Trump administration has said the change is needed to fight anti-Semitism on college campuses, but some critics have questioned these motives and raised concerns about its impact on free speech.

In for Jim Braude, Adam Reilly was joined by Janette Hillis-Jaffe, the New England Regional Director of J-Street, and Robert Leikind, regional director of American Jewish Committee (AJC) New England.
