Will the Madoff Scandal Fuel Anti-Semitism?

Saturday, January 17, 2009

"Madoff: a Jewish Reckoning." That was the title of a panel discussion that drew an overflow crowd at the Yivo Institute for Jewish Research Thursday night. Speakers with divergent views reflected on Bernie Madoff and his impact on Jewish people. It's been widely reported that the disgraced money manager used his contacts within the Jewish community to attract investors to his alleged Ponzi scheme. WNYC's Lisa Chow attended the panel discussion and talks about it with Weekend Edition Host Brian Zumhagen.
