Coming up on Sept. 28: anti-Semitism in Germany

In the new Jewish year, our show addresses a sensitive question — Is it safe to be Jewish in Germany? Should German authorities be doing more given rising anti-Semitism and attacks like Halle? We are looking for audience questions to bring to our panel. Share your question via the  online form. We will select a few listeners to record their questions to be aired during the show.
