Mother With A Gun

Founded by Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York City in 1968, the Jewish Defense League advocates any means necessary to combat antisemitism. Once considered the most active terrorist organization in the United States for its use of armed response and preventative violence, the JDL is currently led by Shelley Rubin, the widow of its leader of several decades. With candor, Mother with a Gun charts Rubin’s path to extremism, how an archetypal "nice Jewish girl" defied family and community expectations for love and purpose – at a deep personal cost.
