We are thrilled to announce our second HUC-JIR Symposium:

These Truths We Hold: Judaism in the Age of Truthiness

November 11-12, 2018 in Los Angeles

Nowadays, there is my news and your news, your truth and my truth, and consensus about facts is increasingly elusive. Even the university, once the place where young minds pursued “veritas,” is more likely today to teach its students the postmodern prioritization of subjectivity over objectivity, discourse over reality, perspective over universal truth. Against this backdrop, Symposium Two will explore the various ways in which contemporary Jews—especially liberal Jews—grapple with the concept of the truth.
