Environmental Judaism and Jewish youth identity formationPosted on: Apr 18, 2017
The Institute for Christian Studies & Society presents Dr. Anne Read of the University of Waterloo on Wednesday April 19th at 12:00 – 1:00 pm in HA 009. This presentation will examine environmental and community-based Judaism among Jewish youth in Canada. Diaspora Studies investigate issues of the social identity of emigrants as they relate to their ancestral homeland. Judaism has long been defined by the homeland Israel. However, the majority of Jews live outside of Israel. Maintaining Jewish identity as minority groups scattered over the world is a constant challenge, how do we redefine “sacred land?”.
