Religion or Nation? Modern Debates about Jewish Identity
Hosted By: Shalom Hartman Institute
Why has modernity forced Jews to define themselves either as a religion or a nation? This series will consider how emancipation in Europe and the subsequent rise of modern antisemitism shaped internal Jewish debates, Jewish conversion controversies in the 19th and 20th centuries, and present-day debates about religious freedom and discrimination in America, which require attempts to classify Judaism in terms of either religion or nationality.
This seminar series is part of Ideas for Today, Shalom Hartman Institute’s curated offering of public lectures, multi-session seminars, and special programs and events that harness Jewish wisdom for a better future.
This is a 3-part seminar series on Jan 27, Feb 3, Feb 10
