About this event
This lecture is made possible through the generosity of Dr. Joseph (ז״ל) and Rose Mary Shuchart (ז״ל) Backlar Lectureship.
What if we think about the diaspora not as a negative condition of the Jewish people, but as a foundational character of Jewish existence, as a source of its cultural and political vitality? Prof. Daniel Boyarin proposes “a no-state solution,” a new-Diasporist vision for the Jewish future.
Join him to explore his recent research into the Jewish past and future, Zionism and its alternatives, in conversation with AJU’s Prof. Michael Berenbaum.
