Jonathan Weisman is a Deputy Washington Editor and Congress Editor at The New York Times. He covered Congress, politics and economics for The Times. His journalism career has taken him from The Oakland Tribune to The Baltimore Sun, USA Today, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal before he found himself at The Times. His 2014 novel, No. 4 Imperial Lane, was a Chautauqua Prize finalist, Amazon Best Book of the Month and Great Group Reads Pick at the Women’s National Book Association. His new book, (((Semitism))) is a rumination on the rise of anti-Semitism, racism and hate in the era of Trump, and what should be done to confront it.
