A hostage situation at a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, over the weekend renewed Jewish fears of increasing antisemitic sentiment in the U.S. and the danger that may pose to members of the Jewish community.

The FBI is approaching the event as a terrorist incident.

Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz is president and dean of Valley Beit Midrash in Scottsdale.

The Show spoke with him to learn his reaction to what happened in Texas.
