This Month on 18Forty
What can we do to address and diminish abuse? In recent years, thanks to intense efforts by activists and increased awareness of communal leaders, the Jewish community has worked to increasingly engage in building healthier and safer cultures for all its members. As individuals and as communities, there is still much work to accomplish, as abusive practices can often exist subtly and perniciously. This month, we explore the question of abuse in our communities, as we learn about the pragmatic and particular changes that we can make in our lives to build a safer Jewish world for all.
Intergenerational Divergence (Season 2)
This series is sponsored by our friend, Danny Turkel.
Judaism is a religious culture that places an intense emphasis on continuing the chain of tradition through the context of the family. Yet in an ever-changing contemporary world, families often disagree—sometimes in fundamental ways—about how to live this life. Faced with this disagreement between generations, some choose to ignore these differences, focusing instead on the seemingly uninterrupted flow of history within families. However, reflecting on intergenerational divergence offers important insights on the fundamental nature of family, faith communities, and religion in the contemporary world.
