Where Are We Now?
Mark Oppenheimer / Yale University
If you’re an American Jew, you don’t know what to think. One day, you read that we are disappearing due to intermarriage and low birth rate; the next day, you read that young Jews are fomenting a renaissance of religious life. One day, you read that anti-Semitic attacks are up; the next day, you read that Jews are, according to surveys, one of American’s most admired ethnic groups. And then there’s Trump: good for the Jews or bad? In this talk, a former NY Times religion columnist, who now hosts the #1 Jewish podcast, sorts out fact from fiction, and offers some surprising conclusions.
Mark Oppenheimer is the host of the weekly podcast Unorthodox, produced by Tablet magazine. He is also a staff writer for the Christian Century and has written for many publications, including Harper’s, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, the Yale Review, the Hartford Courant, Playboy, and Slate. He has taught at Wesleyan, Yale, Stanford, Boston College, and NYU.
