Disloyal/Loyal? American Judaism in the Era of the Trump Presidency

September 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Center for Jewish Civilization invites you to join us for our dialogue about American Jews in the Era of the Trump Presidency.

President Donald J. Trump’s recent aside about loyal and disloyal Jewish Americans triggered anger and denunciations from a broad spectrum of American voices. Trump’s remarks are triangulated against two salient features of his presidency. First, his tight embrace of the Netenyahu administration, and second, the disturbing rise of white supremacist violence directed against Jews and others in the United States. In this panel discussion, we ask some noted experts and thought leaders on contemporary political issues confronting the Jewish people to reflect on the current moment, and what the president’s “loyal/disloyal” musing portends for the Jewish American community, and the nation at large.

Any person with an accommodation request is welcome to email us at cjcinfo@georgetown.edu. We will try to meet these accommodation requests to the best of our ability.
