Today, there are several crucial issues facing American Judaism. How much should Israel define American Jewish identity and what should be our attitude toward organizations that criticize Israel? How should we respond to today’s close to 70 percent intermarriage rate—is this a challenge or a blessing? What should we do in the face of closing synagogues and changing patterns of affiliation among the younger generation of Jews?  How concerned should we be about anti-Semitism today?

This course will examine the contemporary debates around these issues and others, as well as look at the historical development that gave rise to them.

The History of Now: What Jewish History Teaches Us About Contemporary Jewish Issues is a 10-week adult learning class. It meets Thursdays, 9:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m., Feb. 1 through April 26, 2018, and is taught by Rabbi Dan Judson, Ph.D., and Jonathan Sarna, Ph.D.
