|Fall College Retreat: November 5-7 in Cincinnati
The topic of the Fall College Retreat in Cincinnati on November 5-7, 2010 is “The Book of Jon...Stewart: Judaism's Influence on American Culture and American Culture's Influence on Judaism.”
Now perhaps more than ever, what it means to be Jewish is being defined by highly visible Jews in American Culture. This weekend will explore this phenomenon. Was this true in the past? Who were those Jews then? Who are they now? What are the implications for us? Join college students from around the country for a weekend full of study, fun, and a look into how Judaism is being defined in our time. The Fall College Retreat is presented by the American Jewish Archives.
