Binah: Susie Linfield with Eran Kaplan

susie-linfield-the-lions-den.jpg

Cultural critic Susie Linfield discusses how twentieth-century intellectuals struggled with Zionism, and how the contemporary Left has become focused on anti-Zionism while Israel itself has moved rightward. Her new book is The Lions’ Den: Zionism and the Left from Hannah Arendt to Noam Chomsky.

She’s joined in conversation by Eran Kaplan, Professor in Israel Studies at San Francisco State University.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
