Can Faith and Politics be Separated?

Communities across America are divided over politics, culture, identity, and the overall direction of the country. Are religious congregations any different? How do religious leaders today navigate deeply divisive issues — like the Middle East, gay marriage, abortion, the immigration crisis — in their own communities? We examine the role religious leaders play in such partisan times.


Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations 2019-2020 Season: Where is Our Country Headed?

Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations, JCC Greater Boston’s acclaimed discussion series, brings together distinguished scholars, artists and activists to engage in unique exchanges around controversial and difficult subjects. Renowned panelists are led by expert moderators through respectful and thought-provoking discussions on issues of concern to the Jewish community and beyond.

As we move closer to the 2020 elections, the United States has become bitterly divided on issues ranging from reproductive rights to fake news. This season begs the question: Where is our country headed? We explore polarizing issues that have Americans split about the direction of our nation.

We will discuss the pivotal role our nation’s laws, religions, and leadership play in shaping our community. We’ll seek answers to critical questions that define us not just as a community, but as humans in a constantly and rapidly changing world.
