Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents

March 23 , 7:00 pm

In her new book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” Isabel Wilkerson explores the impact of the American caste system—a rigid hierarchy of human divisions—and its connections to caste systems in India and Nazi Germany. Join Wilkerson and Rabbi Angela Warnick Buchdahl, senior rabbi at New York’s Central Synagogue, for a conversation from the Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust about “Caste,” the legacy of the Holocaust and what lies under the surface of American life today.
