What Do We Mean by a ‘Big Tent’? with Yehuda Kurtzer


June 1, 2022

How might we build a communal conversation around Israel that tolerates widely disparate views?

The American Jewish community has long used the metaphor of a “big tent” to describe the vision that it tolerates a broad spectrum of viewpoints on Israel. While this feels inclusive, it often designates some views as outside the range of acceptable communal discourse. Yehuda Kurtzer will explore the challenges and opportunities of ideological pluralism and how we might foster an ethic of inclusion in the Chicago Jewish community.

Public lecture followed by panel conversation with Yehuda Kurtzer and Rabbis Michael Siegel, Shoshanah Conover, and David Wolkenfeld, moderated by Jason Rosensweig.
