Critical Conversations: Community Responsibility

Hosted By: Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership

Critical Conversations is an annual Spertus Institute program inspired by Judaism’s embrace of civil discourse. The series brings together high-profile experts and activists to debate the most critical issues of the day. This year, our presenters will focus on community responsibility—within and beyond Jewish life.

This year’s panelists are NPR Education Correspondent Anya Kamenetz, Professor of Disability Studies Dr. Lennard J. Davis, and Medical Anthropologist Dr. Emily Mendenhall.

The pandemic has forced an array of longstanding issues to the forefront, making questions of community ever more critical. In this program we examine the sharp edges by which communities are defined and enlivened, how the pandemic has affected our notion of community responsibility, and how these issues shape our future.
