In an increasingly secular world of endless choices and fragmented identities, does American Jewry have a future? Or are we destined to become a historical footnote? What, if anything, will sustain our community?

Join Gal Beckerman, an editor at The New York Times Book Review, and seven other authors to wrestle with answers to these crucial questions: Can religion again become our glue? Can it be replaced by a sense of peoplehood or a bond with Israel? How can we find new sources of meaning and rootedness to maintain our Jewish identity?

This program is co-presented with the Jewish Book Council
