Tangled Identities, Evolving Beliefs: American Jewish Thought Since 1934
Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC
What comes first: the “American” or the “Jewish”? How have the dual — and sometimes dueling—identities morphed in Jewish thought over the past two generations?
Secular spirituality. Ultra-Orthodoxy. Post-Holocaust theology. Neo-Hasidism. Queer theory. (Anti)Zionist militancy. What is American Jewish thought and how has it evolved?
Michael Marmur and David Ellenson, editors of American Jewish Thought Since 1934: Writings on Identity, Engagement, & Belief, published one year ago, will delve into the shifting soundscape around questions of loyalty and belonging, religious practice, secular discontents and the creative American recasting of Jewish peoplehood.
