OITNB's Diane Guerrero wants the undocumented community to unite

Discussing Israeli politics around a Passover Seder table

While the Passover Seder is typically a time for discussing the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt, Fusion’s Dan Lieberman hosted his own Seder and turned the conversation to the 2016 election. He invited people like Ben Shnider, J Street’s political director, Kenneth Bricker of The Israel Project, and other community members to join him for a discussion on the presidential candidates and where they stand on Israel.
