Haberman Institute Conversations: Ideas and Events Shaping American Jewish Life
Moderated by David Epstein

Session #1: The American Jewish Experience: At the Speed of Zoom
Join us to reflect on how our narratives fit into the context of the American story and explore other related issues, including:

How does your family’s immigrant narrative fit into our broader Jewish community? Is the experience of your family typical… whatever that means?

What does it mean to say my immigrant forefathers were Orthodox Jews? Or were they?

What were the implications of President Washington’s letter to the Newport Synagogue?

No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution Article VI, Clause 3

The First Amendment: “Establishment of religion” and “the free exercise thereof…”

Is there a "wall of separation between church and state,” and if so, how high or how low?

U.S. Grant’s General Order No. 11 (1862)

The 1916 Appointment of Louis D. Brandeis… What is the legacy of 100 years with eight Jewish Justices on the U.S. Supreme Court?
