Dr. Stern will speak on Judaism in the Public Square: Battles over Menorahs, Eruvs and Charter School at Temple Adas
Temple Adas Israel, Sag Harbor,
Jews have never fully adopted America’s embrace of public displays of religion. Has restricting Judaism to the realm of synagogues and homes hurt the development of a robust Jewish identity?
And at 5:00 PM on Saturday, everyone is invited to a Sedudat Sh’lishit (light Sabbath afternoon meal) where Dr. Stern will speak on: Is America a “Judeo-Christian” Country? Culture Wars in America from WWII to 9/11. Judeo-Christianity is the most commonly used phrase to describe the religious character of the United States. What does this term mean and what role has it played in American foreign policy?
All of the events are free and open to the public.Temple Adas Israel is located at Elizabeth Street and Atlantic Avenue in Sag Harbor. For further information check the Temple’s website, www.templeadasisrael.org; email info@templeadasisrael or call the temple office at 631-725-0904.
