Broad Perspectives: A New Series Exploring the Lines That Divide and Connect Us
Co-Presented by the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History at Temple University and Congregation Rodeph Shalom
In this series, "Broad Perspectives," we will turn over ideas again and again, as we explore the lines that divide and connect us, in conversation with intellectuals, writers, experts, and activists who are working to build a just and equal world that values Broad Perspectives.
With this series, our leg of Broad Street will not only be known for real estate development but for meaningful ideas that inspire our spiritual life paths.
We are deeply grateful to the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History at Temple University for its partnership.
