Great insight

The WJC is a trusted non profit that supports the Jewish people around the world, Israel and Diaspora - through the commitment of eradicating anti semitism. This episode of Jewish World is fascinating - diving into anti semitism in the world of sports. I look forward to hearing more from the WJC.
