Andrew Silow-Caroll, Editor in Chief of the New Jersey Jewish News and the former managing editor of the Forward, will be the featured speaker in an presentation focusing on the future of liberal Judaism.
Recent demographic studies suggest that amid soaring intermarriage and assimilation rates, the Jewish Community is destined to shrink in size and influence. A closer look at the data, however, suggests different, even contradictory trend: Orthodox Jewry is growing, liberal Jewish identity is broad but vulnerable, and the Conservative "Center" is not holding.
The Lunch and Learn event on January 31 includes lunch 1:15 p.m., the presentation at 1:45 p.m., followed by Q&A at 3 p.m.
