PROVIDENCE – A lot of people figured that a guy like Ari Melber, MSNBC and NBC chief legal correspondent and host of “The Beat,” would have some insight into the current political situation in the United States. They packed the Baxt Social Hall at the Alliance’s Dwares Jewish Community Center. There were so many people that they spilled into the adjacent Board Room to watch on a livestream set up there. Melber did not disappoint. On Nov. 3, an evening when there was plenty of competition for sports fans’ time, Alliance CEO Adam Greenman welcomed the 450 people in attendance with the promise that “we will get you out of here by 8 o’clock,” in time to get home for the Patriots’ showdown game against Baltimore. He went on to thank the crowd for their support of the annual campaign to foster a stronger, more vibrant Jewish community.
