Race, Religion, Family: 25 Years After Kiryas Joel
September 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Race, Religion, Family: 25 Years After Kiryas Joel feautring Jonathan Boyarin
The Supreme Court’s 1994 decision in Grumet v. Kiryas Joel showed the difficulties of a jurisprudence of religious freedom based on individual rights when it is confronted with the demands of an intergenerational collective. 25 years later, the persistence of kin-based, separatist Jewish communities disturbs neat categories of race and religion as bases for claims of right, and undermines standard narratives of the progressive assimilation and “whitening” of Jews in the United States.
