Summary : Bernard-Henri Levy on America, France, And the Jews, at the 92nd Street Y

Renowned French philosopher, journalist, and filmmaker Bernard-Henri Levy speaks with The New Yorker's Adam Gopnik about the often-fraught relationship between France and its Jewish population, and between America and France because of the situation between France and its Jews. Among the issues addressed are French anti-Semitism; the shared role of the French tradition and of the Islamic movements in this anti-Semitism; why anti-Zionism is becoming a new world ideology; the different apprehension of Israel in America and France; and what it's like to be a Jew in France and in America.
This event took place on January 29, 2006.
