JCRC/Shalom Hartman Institute program

JCRC/Shalom Hartman Institute program

Our two-program series with

The Shalom Hartman Institute

starts on January 29th!

First program: Tuesday, January 29, 2019, 6:00-8:00pm
Location: 126 High Street, 2nd Floor Conference Center
Speaker: Rabbi Sarah Mulhern (bio below)
Topic: Anti-Semitism and the Limits of Peoplehood

In the current polarized political climate, American Jews can agree on nothing – including what counts as anti-Semitism and how to respond to it. In this class, we will analyze a number of troubling case studies to seek to understand the ways in which anti-Semitism has become a wedge issue, even among Jews, and why. More importantly, we will interrogate how we, as participants and leaders in Jewish community, can think about leading in this charged context by engaging with Jewish texts from other periods of Jewish communal strife to explore what options they might offer us in this moment.

These sessions are by invitation only.
