Can the Jewish People Survive as Secularists?

Adas Israel Congregation

Dates: Tuesday, November 30, 2010
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Jacques Berlinerblau

Dr. Jacques Berlinerblau is an Associate Professor and Director of the Program for Jewish Civilization at Georgetown University.

What is "Secular Judaism"? The term "secular Jew" is used by those who claim to be secular Jews and those who see secular Jews as part of a malaise afflicting Judaism. But what is it and why does there seem to be an affinity between secularism and the deeply held beliefs of the American Jewish community? Professor Berlinerblau will look at the history of Judaism with an eye towards understanding the factors which may predispose Jews to become the secular people par excellence.
