When Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was confirmed last month despite opposition from conservative Jewish groups, some observers declared it a victory for the more moderate Israel lobby group J-Street, which supported Hagel. J-Street founder and president Jeremy Ben-Ami joins us to talk about his group's work and about President Obama's trip to Israel next week.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Jeremy Ben-Ami, founder and president of J-Street and former deputy domestic policy adviser in the White House under President Bill Clinton
