"How American Jews Fell in Love with the Secular State", a talk by Kenneth Wald, Professor Emeritus, Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 6pm in Pugh Hall Ocora.
Kenneth D. Wald was the first Samuel R. Shorstein Professor of American Jewish Culture and Society at UF from 20122016.

American Jews remain the most pro-Democratic white ethnic group in the United States, a puzzling phenomenon because they exhibit social traits usually associated with conservative and Republican loyalties. In trying to account for this pattern, Wald explores how concerns about the relationship between church and state became a central political priority of the American Jewish community.

  • Co-sponsored by the Bob Graham Center.
