What does being Jewish mean? How important is this aspect of your identity to you and your families? Juda and Ruth Pearl edited a collection of responses to their questions from a wide spectrum of prominent Israeli and American Jewish personalities. Voices
represented range from Elie Wiesel to Shimon Peres, from
Ruth Bader Ginsburg to Rabbi Harold Kushner, from Tom
Friedman to Deborah Lipstadt. What emerges from this
volume is a rich mosaic of possibilities. This course will focus
on the most telling of these essays as spring boards for
analyzing our own perspectives on this aspect of our identities.
