iEngage: Together and Apart

iEngage: Together and Apart—The Future of Jewish Peoplehood

October 24, December 14, January 25, February 29, March 14, April 25, May 23 and June 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Our newest iEngage video curriculum explores one of the most pressing issues facing the Jewish world today–how we move from being a people with no permanent home to one with two permanent homes.

Through video lectures, interviews and textual sources, this 14-unit course addresses the complex features of Jewish peoplehood and the contemporary challenges to the Jewish people in an era in which we have moved from having no home to having two different, vibrant, homes in Israel and in North America.

The curriculum examines the forces dividing the Jewish people today, including nationalism, antisemitism, dual-loyalty, and identity politics; and it imagines new conceptual frameworks that can help sustain and grow the story of our people for a new millennium.

Presented in partnership with the Shalom Hartman Institute

The iEngage session on November 7 is cancelled so that participants have the opportunity to register for Donniel Hartman and Dahlia Lithwick's conversation on "Who Are the Jews—And Who Can We Become?", a presentation at Adath Israel. 

  • How can Jews still speak in collective terms, given the unprecedented level of denominational tribalism?

    In his new book, Who Are the Jews—And Who Can We Become? Donniel Hartman posits that we need a new shared story to replace the current one that is putting our collective identity at risk.

    Join Donniel Hartman for a conversation with award-winning journalist and author Dahlia Lithwick about the possibility of a new story, one built on collective Jewish meaning, moral rigor, and a courageous commitment to one another.
This conversation will be followed by a dessert reception and book signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
