Robert P. Kogod Annual Lecture
Jewish Peoplehood Across Division: Reconsidering North American Jewry and Israel
The May 2021 conflict between Israel and Hamas challenged the Israeli and American Jewish communities in sharply different ways and revealed profoundly distinctive experiences and anxieties.
Donniel Hartman and Abigail Pogrebin discuss these differences and what each community can and must learn from the other, addressing questions of power and proportionality, antisemitism, and the need for a non-partisan moral discourse as an element of Jewish identity and Zionism.
