U.S. Special Envoy Ira Forman On Combating Anti-Semitism Around The World

Last year's shootings at Jewish facilities in Overland Park highlighted continuing anti-Semitic attitudes in the United States, but it remains a global problem as well. So much so that in 2004  the U.S. created a position dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism around the world. On this edition of Up To Date, Steve Kraske speaks with the man who holds that job. 

Guest:

  • Ira Forman is the U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism. 
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region.
