Hey John Ryan, I appreciate your candidacy as you shared your experience combatting antisemitism. I agree with you that addressing the issue when it arises is the best tactic. Being communicative and upfront on topics like this signal to the other person the firmness of your belief and provide a better foundation for productive educational conversations – they’re less likely to try and bully you out of the conversation. Additionally, I appreciated your insight about the overlap of Christian and Jewish value for love and respect. I think revolving around similarities and common wants assists in having more productive coversation.
