A Four-Part Public Lecture Series


During these four public conversations, we will examine questions and issues surrounding modern Jewish identity, such as:

1) What are the concerns around intermarriage and Jewish identity, where do they come from, and what assumptions about Jewish sincerity and Jewish commitment underlie these concerns?

2) What does Jewish identity mean in the American marketplace of identities and choice, and how do classical understandings of Jewish identity inform or challenge the contemporary conversation?

3) What does belonging to the Jewish people mean, and what kinds of belonging are most challenged by the intermarriage phenomenon? How might we think differently about the nature of belonging in light of these realities?

4) How do the major trends of contemporary Jewish life line up with past historical paradigms of the Jewish experience? What options are available to contemporary Jews in marshaling credible, authentic and sincere arguments from the Jewish past in trying to rethink this issue for the Jewish future?


December 14 lecture starts at 6:30 PM. All other lectures start at 7:00 PM.
