A recent dispute among members of a predominantly Jewish country club over whether to offer President Obama membership has prompted wider debate about the limits of tolerant communities. Rockville’s Woodmont Country Club has said it will welcome the president, despite some members’ opposition to his Middle East policy.

Kojo explores the fallout from the dispute and learns how community members are viewing its meaning in light of the current political climate.
