Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
Food For Thought Luncheon Lecture 2003-2004 Series
Rabbi David Ellenson, Ph.D.
President, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
"Jewish Religious Denominationalism: 19th Century Origins, Contemporary
"As a result of the political, cultural, religious, and social transformations
that characterized Jewish life in Germany during the 19th century, modern Jewish
religious movements -Reform, Conservative and Orthodox - arose. This lecture
will explore the nature of the multiple religious responses to these transformations,
and will explore the similarities as well as the differences that informed each
movement. Rabbi Ellenson will reflect on the ongoing meaning of these movements
in an American setting today that is radically different from the context that
originally gave birth to them."
