Travel with the J: Becoming Jewish In America
Tue December 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Travel with us May 13 – 20, 2020!
Join us at the J for an informational meeting on Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., to learn about the exciting travel opportunity, “Becoming Jewish in America,” offered by the EMU Center for Jewish Studies in partnership with the Jewish Federation, Ann Arbor JCC, and Journey’s International.
Have Jews in the United States “made it”? How does the idea of the professional, financially successful, urban—and urbane—Jew affect our self-image? Are Jews fully accepted into all parts of society in the United States? What does it mean to us that our nation’s most prominent non-Jewish families—such as the Kennedys, Clintons, and Trumps—have Jewish members in them? Professors Jeff Bernstein and Marty Shichtman will delve into these questions and more during this exploration of the American Jewish experience in NYC, DC and Philadelphia.
