Is There a Jewish Continuity Crisis?
Hosted By: Haberman Institute
Jews express a great deal of concern about demographics. Some say this concern came out of modern, political Zionism, others suggest it is a post-Holocaust phenomenon. The demographic concerns get louder and quieter at different points in time.
Join Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies to explore the contours of this concern over Jewish demographics; this event will look closely at Jewish reproductive rates, and participants will have a chance to problematize the discourse. The language of crisis makes it seem like all of our energy, funds, etc. should be directed towards solving the crisis, but in many ways, our tradition, our laws, our cultural norms challenge the idea of “crisis” when it comes to demographics.
