Rabbi Stephen Wise, Nahum Goldmann and the Jewish Establishment

Tuesday 6.02.2024


Rabbi Stephen Wise and Nahum Goldmann were two of the most powerful Jewish personalities of mid-20th century America. They rose to prominence at a time when the Jewish world was under threat, both from the horrors of Nazism and homegrown antisemitism. This session will examine their responses as well as those of the Jewish establishment.
