THU 10/28 @ 4 PM: Jewish Intellectual History

10/28/21 - 4:00 PM - Via Zoom

Session Twenty: "Mordecai Kaplan and American Judaism" led by Marty Rosensweig. Mordechai Kaplan (1881-1983) was perhaps the most original of American Jewish thinkers who "reconstructed" Judaism to meet the needs of second-generation American Jews. Anthropology offered Kaplan a rationale for Jewish group cohesiveness in place of the traditional doctrine of chosen-ness.
