But very often are being told that they need to check their Zionism, their support for Israel, at the door, before they’re being allowed a seat at the table. And that’s just, that’s wrong,” said Linda Scherzer, director of the Jewish Community Relations Council at the Jewish Federation of Greater Metro West.
