Event Description

In 2021, the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, in partnership with by the Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies at Brandeis University and NORC at the University of Chicago, sponsored and conducted The Study of Jewish LA, an examination of major trends in LA Jewish demography and sociology. Join HUC faculty in a discussion, cohosted by the LA Federation, about this long-overdue study and its novel approach to gauging Jewish life, questioning our traditional interpretation of intermarriage, diversity, religiosity, and identity.
