Refiguring American Jewish Identity through Solidarity with Palestinians: A Relational Approach to Religious Innovation

September 16, 2014

Professor Atalia Omer will deliver this year’s Dana McLean Greeley Lecture for Peace and Social Justice. Professor Omer is Associate Professor of Religion, Conflict and Peace Studies at Notre Dame and Faculty Fellow at the Center for the Study of Religion and Society at the University.

Based on in-depth interviews with Jewish Palestine solidarity activists and systematic study of Jewish solidarity movement social media, Omer demonstrates how refiguring alternative Jewish meanings of rituals, practices, and texts may emerge from contesting Jewish nationalism and Israeli occupation policies, through solidarity with Palestinians.
