Please Register today!
Members of the Jewish community hold a wide spectrum of beliefs, and in the aftermath of the recent elections in Israel, our sense of communal identity is being tested. We are left to wonder if anyone has the right - or the responsibility - to speak on behalf of us all. The evening will feature a discussion between Yehuda Kurtzer, President of the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America and Jeremy Burton, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston.
This program is co-sponsored by the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston, and the Combined Jewish Philanthropies iEngage Initiative.
Dr. Yehuda Kurtzer is President of the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America. He has a doctorate in Jewish Studies from Harvard University and an MA in Religion from Brown University, and is an alumnus of both the Wexner Graduate and Bronfman Youth Fellowship programs.
Jeremy Burton is the Executive Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC), defining and advancing the values, interests and priorities of the organized Jewish community of Greater Boston in the public square.
