On the watch for bias

In 2010 Rabbi David Nesenoff filmed longtime White House journalist Helen Thomas saying that Israel should “get the hell out of Palestine” and that Jews should return to Poland and Germany. The footage went viral and led to Thomas’ resignation. Nesenoff, who has also worked as a consultant to the U.S. Department of Justice, will be at Chabad of the Tri-Valley to discuss his work.
