Jews and Politics in America, Part II: 1880-Present
Sponsor Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel
Type of Event Religious Services
Description Following the Civil War and Reconstruction, anti-Semitism increasingly challenged the place of Jews in American society and abroad. Both the uptown German Jews and the downtown East European Jews fought to preserve their rights in the United States.

During the 1930s, American Jews widely aligned with FDR and the New Deal. In the 1940s, they supported both the “win the war” effort and rallied around the creation of the new State of Israel.

In recent years, the political culture of American Jewish life has become increasingly complex. However, both the future direction and intensity of Jewish participation in American politics has become increasingly difficult to predict.

Free and open to the public.
