Jews, Whiteness, Power and Privilege – Monday, November 9 – 7:00 pm

A Lecture with Professor Marc Dollinger, Ph.D.
Are American Jews white? The question, answered differently by different generations of American Jews, gets at the heart of American Jewish identity. Have Jews remained separate and distinct from the rest of middle-class America or have they assimilated so much that they have become white? Come explore the contentious history and sociology of Jews and racial definition. We’ll then explore how white-presenting Jews have, and have not, been considered privileged in U.S. history.
This event is made possible through the generous support of Congregation Har HaShem by Madeline Cohen and Steve Freiburger in honor of Sara-Jane and Bill Cohen
