There is a political crossroads facing the Jewish community. Several issues came together in this election--the rise of antisemitism within mainstream party politics, the growing political polarization over Israel, and the future of U.S. -Israeli relations with the solidication of the rightward shift in Israeli politics.
What potential points of reunification can there be for American Jews, even with the contention over Israel, and the need for a political mobilization against antisemitism in domestic politics as we saw in the 1950s?
On Wednesday evening, May 10, 2017 from 7:30-8:45 pm, the American Jewish Archives (AJA), the Jewish Community Relations Council and AJC will present a live, interactive video program entitled, The Trump Presidency and the Future of American Jewry with Dr. Julian E. Zelizer—one of the pioneers in the revival of American political history. The event — presented in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month — will take place at The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati Electronic Classroom at the AJA, located on the Cincinnati campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, 3101 Clifton Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45220.
A reception will immediately follow the program presentation. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Please RSVP to Sue Boyce at 513.487.3000; or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
