Who Are the Jews—And Who Can We Become?
In his new JPS book, Who Are the Jews—And Who Can We Become?, Donniel Hartman posits that we need a new shared story to replace the one that is currently putting our collective identity at risk. In this session, Donniel was joined by author and journalist Abigail Pogrebin for a conversation about the impact of the October 7 attacks on the possibilities for a new Jewish story built on collective Jewish meaning, moral rigor, and a courageous commitment to each other, one that gives us a language for understanding and addressing today’s core Jewish challenges in Israel and in the Diaspora. Presented as part of the Shalom Hartman Institute’s Ideas for Today series, in partnership with The Jewish Publication Society.
