Beyond Bagels and Lox: Writing about Jewish Lives in the 21st Century

Hosted By: Moment Magazine

How do novelists of today tell the stories of Jews living their lives in 21st-century America? Is there still such a thing as a “Jewish story”? Join a wide-ranging conversation with Allegra Goodman, whose acclaimed books include the National Book Award finalist Kaaterskill Falls, Paradise Park, The Family Markowitz and most recently Sam. Goodman’s characters range from hippie seekers in Hawaii to Hasidic Jews in upstate New York, and they navigate varied landscapes of identity and community, Jewish and otherwise, as they search for meaning. Discuss how Judaism is and is not portrayed in fiction today and about the influence of religion, spirituality, community and assimilation on today’s Jewish authors. In conversation with Moment Book & Opinion editor Amy E. Schwartz.
