Catch an illustrated presentation on American Judaism from 1654 to the present by the acclaimed scholar who wrote American Judaism: A History—a best-selling book on the subject. Discover the dynamic story of people struggling to be both Americans and Jews and learn how each generation of American Jews has had to wrestle anew with the question of whether its children and grandchildren will remain connected to their Judaism. Covering this history from the colonial era to the present day, this lecture illustrates how the past can both inform and inspire.

Jonathan Sarna, Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History in the Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, Brandeis University
