Twentieth Nate and Ann Levine Lecture in Jewish Studies

Event date: April 5, 2016 Time: 7:30 pm "Imagining a Vibrant Future for American Judaism.” Dr. Arnold Eisen is one of the world's leading experts on American Judaism and the Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary. He will discuss and debunk the recent forecasts of gloom and doom when it comes to the future of non-Orthodox Judaism in America, a future that — so it is said — mirrors the decline of mainstream Christian groups and the triumph of the "nones": individuals who turn away from any kind of religious belief or community.
