This course will explore the sociological literature on American Jewry as it examines the conflicts and struggles of American Jews as they strive to maintain themselves in a pluralistic society. In doing so, the course will explore topics such as Jewish identity, intergroup and intragroup relations, group survival, relations with Israel and new understandings of diaspora, and community structure and organization. Students will first look at the broader context of American society, including issues of democratic values, religious freedom, and social stratification. The class will review current issues facing the American Jewish Community as it examines the lively tension between tradition and change. The course will be conducted seminar style with an expectation of active student participation, including discussions and presentations, as well as research and reflection papers.
