Are American Jews white? The question, answered differently by different generations of American Jews, gets at the heart of American Jewish identity. Have Jews remained separate and distinct from the rest of middle-class America or have they assimilated so much that they have become white? Come explore the contentious history and sociology of Jews and racial definition. Journey back through history and discover some (surprising) insights into the debate over Jewish whiteness.
Temple Beth Ami is proud to co-sponsor this lecture with the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR).
