Last week, President Obama called for a return to 1967 boundaries for the state of Israel. Next week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to address Congress on the issue of peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Wednesday night, the debate comes home to Boston.

The Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston is facing questions around what it means to be pro-Israel. Some are calling for the exclusion of the progressive group, J Street. As the Boston Globe reported this morning, conservative group CAMERA is calling into question the membership of J Street on both technical and political grounds. CAMERA may press JCRC to vote on the removal of J Street.

Radio Boston speaks with Boston Globe reporter Farah Stockman on the contentious debate within the Boston Jewish community.
