Jonathan D. Sarna: The Future of American Judaism

9/5/2005; 59 minutes

Jonathan D. Sarna, Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History at Brandeis University, discusses his new critically-acclaimed book, "American Judaism: A History." While American Jews have always worried about intermarriage, assimilation and continuity, Sarna argues that they have found answers in regeneration, revitalization and renewal. Sarna's talk entitled The Future of American Judaism was given as part of the 350th Commemoration of Jewish Life in America and was sponsored by the Herman P. and Sophia Taubman Endowed Symposia in Jewish Studies.
