As part of the traditional Sunday reviews of the NYT, today's review spoke about the rise of anti-semitism in the US. I have to admit I am not informed about the subject, and that I had never met a Jewish person before moving to BA (yes, I had seen them, but never engaged in conversation and never had any feeling toward Jewish people).
I am quite surprised, as I have always believed that in the US they are overly-sensitive toward Jews for the many that arrived to escape the Holocaust. There are also many shades of Judaism and many lifestyles, and I guess different levels of integration in the society, so I am not sure what Jews the articles is about.
How are the Jews treated, effectively? Are distinction made according to the 'fundamentalism' degree they live according to?
