"How Judaism Became an American Religion"
Wednesday, October 17 at 7:00pm
Steven Weisman will discuss his book, The Chosen Wars: How Judaism Became an American Religion, which tells the dramatic history of how Judaism redefined itself in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries —the personalities that fought each other and shaped its evolution and, crucially, the American dynamic that transformed an ancient religion.
Interviewed by Ivy Barsky, RS Congregant & CEO of the National Museum of American Jewish History.
