dc.description.abstract The writer considers Bernie Sanders' brand of socialism in connection with his Judaism. Contrary to the views of some who have written about Sanders' connection to his Judaism, the writer argues that Sanders does indeed have a strong connection to his Judaism, arguing that in his view, class is the organizing principle--regardless of race, religion, ethnicity--in the struggle against oppression. He argues that skepticism about Sanders' Judaism "reflects a perverse form of gatekeeping, one that seeks to diminish the Jewish people." Click on the link to read the article. en_US
