‘A Wakeup Call’: CEO of Jewish News Syndicate on the War in Israel and How Jews Were Caught Off-Guard

By Nancy Flory Published on December 26, 2023

“Friday night we were dancing as a community at synagogue and waking up at 7 a.m. to air raid sirens and taking my wife and my children in their pajamas without shoes, running into a bomb shelter.”

Alex Traiman, CEO and Bureau Chief of Jewish News Syndicate (JNS), spoke with The Stream recently about the terrorist attacks from Hamas that began October 7 this year in Israel. Traiman talked about why Jews were caught off-guard when the sirens rang out, how Israelis are resilient, and what Americans can do to help Israel.
