Young, Jewish, and Confused: Ethnic Jewish Identity in a Non-Jewish World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How does a culturally or ethnically identified Jew navigate her or his identity while living 'outside' Jewish and Gentile communities? This class explores the provocative and often very isolating experiences of Jews who identify culturally with Judaism but don't have the knowledge or motivation to feel comfortable participating in Jewish life. We will explore specifically the research I did at UVa on Jewish students who feel lost within both UVa's WASP-centric culture and its Jewish community.
