Monday, March 16, 2020
The Tikvah Center

Doors at 6:00 PM | Lecture at 6:30 PM
For centuries, Jews have put their faith in liberal ideas of progress, toleration, and secular democracy. But what if this liberal faith has failed? Ruth Wisse, recently retired from Harvard and now a distinguished senior fellow at the Tikvah Fund, will diagnose the state of Jewish politics in the modern age.
We invite you to join us for “The Liberal Betrayal of the Jews,” a new series of lectures—generously sponsored by Zach Fasman and Andrea Udoff—taking place at the Tikvah Center in Manhattan, located at 165 East 56th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY. In our opening lecture, Prof. Wisse will examine the extent to which anti-Jewish politics are currently gaining strength among certain political and cultural groups in the United States.
Unfortunately, we are at capacity for the first lecture in the series and can no longer accept additional registrations at this time. Interested parties can sign up to join our waitlist below, and should more seats become available we will contact you to let you know.
Save the Dates!
Subsequent lectures will take place according to the schedule below and each meeting will have its own, separate registration that will be announced and posted in the weeks leading up to the lecture.
