In the wake of the deadly attack at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 27, 2018, a myriad of questions haunt Jews all over the world, and American Jews in particular. I will attempt to answer a couple of them in this short space as well as formulate others. How could the generosity of Jewish Americans toward non-Jewish refugees today be turned against them to reach the climax attained in the visceral cry “All Jews must die,” followed by a bloody massacre? How is this hatred of Jews, expressed at the same time by white supremacists, people from the alt-right movement and neo-Nazis, articulated with xenophobic attitudes toward refugees in America?
