A Conference on Rethinking American Jewish History

THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY OF OUR SPONSORS, WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AT NO CHARGE. RESERVATIONS ARE STILL REQUIRED.

Young Jews were the majority of Jewish immigrants to the United States. They dominated the ranks of Jewish political and social movements from anarchism to the counterculture and feminism. They have played a key role in developing a Jewish press, pioneering new Jewish institutions, and creating alternatives to those institutions. They have also been the object of communal condemnation, anxiety and policy. Debates about communal change are debates about Jewish youth.

This conference brings together historians, anthropologists, and scholars of culture in order to reflect on the ways in which young Jews experienced their lives as Jews and Americans over the past two centuries, and how communal and cultural change were reflected in anxieties about Jewish youth. Scholars will ask: How do we tell the history of American Jewish life when we focus on youth? How did young Jewish men and women translate cultural change into American Jewish life? What are the differences between the 21st century and earlier eras? How does cultural memory shape these conversations?

An evening public program will bring together scholars, activists, and cultural critics to reflect on these issues.
