Polarization & Divide: Navigating the News

The information landscape has forever changed, with fake news and blurred lines between fact and opinion. Our panel examines the consequences of living in an age of politicized truth, fake news, and selective reality. We explore how we sort fact from fiction and through what lens do we see the truth? Moreover, we ask what are the implications for creating a civil society.


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.

As a 501(c)(3), JCC Boston does not endorse or oppose candidates for public office or political parties.
