Contemporary French and American Jewish Life: The End of the “Liberal Narrative”

Hosted By: Haberman Institute

Despite its barbarity, the 20th century was in many ways “the Jewish Century,” as Yuri Slezkine famously called it. This was especially true of France and of the United States, the two countries that, in the West, sheltered the most important diaspora Jewish communities after World War II. During the decades of prosperity, Jews in France and in the US became, in different ways, an essential part of “the liberal story” that structured the middle-class and gave the west its identity.
How did this happen, and what does the crisis of liberalism mean for Jews today?
