Latest, Zoominars

About

Qian Julie Wang came to America with her parents when she was seven years old, living in the shadows and always looking over her shoulder throughout her childhood. Learning English and surviving the harsh realities of being undocumented, Qian Julie eventually made her way to Swarthmore College and Yale Law School, marrying and converting to Judaism. Wang is in conversation with Moment editor Sarah Breger about her family’s search for the American dream, her connection to Judaism and the struggles and antisemitism faced by Jews of Color from within the Jewish community.

This program is part of a Moment series on antisemitism supported by the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.

    Shalom, Shana Tova & Gmar Hatima Tova,
    I’m an Israeli Ashkenazi Jew whose children are also Asian, on mother’s side. Watching Moment Magazine wonderful moderator Sarah Berger interview of Qian Julie Wang was a welcome & sad experience. Welcome because it was a great success story of a Jewish writer in a candid & luminous way. Sad because of the discrimination inflicted on Ms. Wang by no other than The Most Discriminated People on Earth. My children have also experienced negative comments and have been discriminated against at Ben Gurion Airport. It is obvious that synagogues, where discrimination is most hurtful, have not addressed this vexing, humiliating and ongoing problem, whether by a few or by many Jewish racists. It is Overdue.
