jewish megatrendsJoin us for a book event to mark the publishing of "Jewish Megatrends: Charting the Course of the American Jewish Future" (Jewish Lights Publishing), edited by Rabbi Sidney Schwarz, senior fellow at Clal: The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership.

The book presents a challenging yet hopeful call for transformational change that looks at the social norms that are shaping the habits and lifestyles of younger American Jews and shows how, on the margins of the Jewish community, core Jewish principles are already generating enthusiasm and engagement from the very millennials that the organized Jewish community has yet to engage.

Panelists include chapter contributors Barry Shrage, president of Combined Jewish Philanthropies, and Rabbi Or Rose, director of the Center for Global Judaism at Hebrew College. Rabbi Sharon Cohen Anisfeld, dean of the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College, will serve as a respondent.

A book signing will follow the discussion. RSVP to tmccann@hebrewcollege.edu.
