The PAS Lecture Series 5773

The Shifting Landscape of American Jewry


Scroll down to the bottom of the page to hear recordings of each lecture.

This series explored how in every generation, the survival of the Jewish people has depended on our ability to remain rooted in the wellsprings of Jewish vitality, while adapting to the changing conditions in which we live. Our age is no different.

A commitment to a dynamic Jewish future demands an open and honest conversation about the tectonic shifts occurring beneath our feet. Do the institutions, ideologies and denominations of American Jewry of the last century recommend themselves for the next one? Does the alphabet soup of current American Jewish organizational life recommend itself to the Jewish future? Are the operating assumptions of American Jews today the same as those of past generations? If not, how – if at all – is the Jewish community adapting to these new conditions?
