Beyond Belief, Behavior and Belonging: Can You Still Be Jewish?

October 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

“Jewish but not by religion” is not a contradiction in terms, but rather, a challenge to the definition of just who it is we call Jewish. Pew’s Portrait of Jewish Americans (2013) reports that Jews not by religion (JNR) constitute 20 percent of American Jewry and nearly a third of its young people.

At the Gratz College Shusterman Distinguished Scholar Lecture, Dr. Debra Renee Kaufman, professor emerita and Matthews Distinguished University Professor at Northeastern University, will discuss this topic. From data that she has been collecting for over a decade, she will also share insights into the importance of being Jewish in the lives of these young adults who identify as “Jewish but not by religion.”

This program is free and open to the public. Register online or contact Mindy Cohen, 215 635-7300 x155.
