Why Be Jewish?: 21st Century Jewish Identity Judaism in the 21st Century has become an option among many other possible labels and identities. Today many young people ask Why be Jewish?—a question their grandparents wouldn’t have even understood. Using a variety of ancient and contemporary texts on Jewish identity, we will explore how to think about where you are on the spectrum of Jewish life and how you can engage others that see things differently. This will be an interactive study, offering ways to deepen your own understanding, spiritual practices and/or emotional commitments.
