1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

With Helen Kim and Noah Leavitt

This session will explore the intersections of race, religion, and Jewish identity in the context of mixed race families in contemporary U.S. society.  We will talk about the research we did for our book, JewAsian, in addition to connections we see between this work and current demographic trends. Learn more.

This is part of a Reconstructing Judaism free online lecture series on Jews, Race, & Religion.


Jews, Race, and Religion

Racism is one of the most pressing ethical challenges of our time. This site provides resources for studying race and racism through the prism of Jewish experience. It accompanies a lecture series co-sponsored by the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies. Leading scholars in Jewish Studies, Critical Race Studies, and Religious Studies will share cutting-edge research that deepens the conversation about race, racism and anti-racism in contemporary society, both American and Jewish.

Scroll down to find introductory materials and resources on the eleven topics our lecturers explore.

The lecture series is free and open to the public. The lectures begin on January 28, 2021, and take place on Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. EST. Recordings of the lectures will be posted on this site after they occur.
