About this event

Note: This is a 90-minute lecture running on Tuesday, 5/11/21 @ 2pm-3:30pm PDT. Upon completed registration, your Zoom invitation will be emailed to you 7 days prior to the start time.

Join the first-ever AJU Scholars Symposium, dedicated to analyzing the changing nature of Jewish life before, during and after the global pandemic. You are invited to join this weekly intimate, unparalleled intellectual exploration as an active participant, where you will observe, discuss, review, and share feedback on the materials presented by AJU scholars and their guests. Prof. Michael Berenbaum will moderate a session by different scholars, who will present papers on a diverse set of topics.

This week we welcome Rabbi Pinchas Giller of AJU and Professor Gilbert N. Kahn, the professor of Political Science at Kean University in Union, New Jersey. The communities that self-identify as Orthodox have displayed varied responses to the pandemic, according to various indicators of their lifestyles and beliefs. Although one could say that responses ran across a strict continuum of religious intensity and response to modernity, other factors were at play. An affinity for alternative therapies dovetailed, in different communities, with the atmosphere of radical doubt in social verities. This was intensified by the community’s broad embrace linked to the influence of the Trump administration, its avowed relationships to Israel and its vision of the American social order. This discussion will attempt to quantify these issues and see what lessons the Orthodox community has learned from the pandemic experience.

Spaces to each session are extremely limited to give ample opportunity for discussion, so we encourage you to enroll today to participate in this premier opportunity.

May 11th Presenters:

  • Rabbi Pinchas Giller, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, American Jewish University
  • Professor Gilbert Kahn, Political Science, Kean University
