Jewish News Editor Andrew Lapin hosted a Facebook Live Tuesday afternoon to answer reader questions about last week’s cover story, “The Ex-Nazi Next Door.”

Lapin first heard of Jeff Schoep earlier this year, as Schoep was beginning his anti-hate outreach. Lapin was intrigued by Schoep’s former prominence within the neo-Nazi movement and also by the fact that he lives in Detroit. The timing of Schoep’s exit also coincided with the JN’s Anti-Semitism Project, our effort to tell stories about how hate and bigotry against Jews has evolved and mutated in the modern day.
