Diane Tobin is the Director of Be’chol Lashon and is our next speaker the What Color Are Jews series
Imagine the Jewish Future
Worldwide, the number of Jews is stagnant. Decimated by the Inquisition, the Holocaust, high intermarriage rates and low birth rates, Jews now comprise only 0.2% of the world’s people. In focusing our attention on traditional demographic models and Eastern European definitions of Jewish behavior and belonging, we miss out on the ways in which communities and individuals are Jewish in the modern world. Join us on our journey as we discover some of our lesser-known fellow Jews around the world and explore the multicultural reality that is American Jewry today.
Hear from Diane Tobin, director of Be’chol Lashon, an institute dedicated to educating the Jewish community about its own diversity.
