Curriculum Wars and the Struggle for the Future of Judaism

Hosted By: Leo Baeck Institute- New York/ Berlin

News reports about curricular standards in Hasidic schools have set off a polarizing public debate. With the rapid growth of Hasidic Judaism, many observers recognize that the future of American Judaism is being contested. Arguments over the Jewish curriculum are not new. In his new book, The Jewish Reformation, Michah Gottlieb (NYU) explores how in the 18th and 19th centuries these disputes reflected competing spiritual visions of Judaism. Join us for an illuminating program about the contemporary relevance of these centuries-old debates.

David Ellenson (Hebrew Union College) will moderate a conversation between Gottlieb, Yitzhak Melamed, (Johns Hopkins University) and Naomi Seidman (University of Toronto).
