Rabbi Darren Kleinberg on Hybrid Judaism
Thurs Dec 15 7pm
Darren Kleinberg explores the shifting discourse on American Jewish identity, in conversation with Professor Marc Dollinger.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
American Jewish identity is changing. To help us better understand the shifting tides of American Jewish identity in a post-Pew era, Rabbi Darren Kleinberg, Ph.D., will discuss his new book, Hybrid Judaism: Irving Greenberg, Encounter, and the Changing Nature of American Jewish Identity, with Professor Marc Dollinger. By exploring identity from a sociological and theological point-of-view, with an emphasis on the life and work of Rabbi Dr. Irving “Yitz” Greenberg, Kleinberg will address the role of transformative encounters in the development of contemporary American Jewish identity.
The program will be followed by an opportunity to purchase Hybrid Judaism and have it signed by the author.
