#MeToo and American Jewish Life
October 20 , 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Katz Center at the University of Pennsylvania presents Keren R. McGinity, research associate at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis University, sharing analysis that changes the narrative about Jewish intermarriage in America and her personal experience speaking truth to power. She will challenge the assumption that “marrying out” spells the demise of the Jewish people and illuminate the ways in which it was socially constructed. Through the dual lenses of gender and change over time, this talk will debunk myths and provide a path forward for a strong Jewish future that includes safety, respect, and equity. Presented in partnership with the National Museum of American Jewish History.
