AJC – “AJC Academy: AJC as a Jewish Organization with Dr. Steven Bayme”

April 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

AJC has long believed that Jewish security presupposes active Jewish identification and interest in leading a creative and vibrant Jewish life. In this session, Dr. Steven Bayme, AJC’s long-time Director of Contemporary Jewish Life will reflect on AJC’s distinctive ethos as a Jewish organization and how that has expressed itself over his four-decade long tenure with the agency. What has it meant to be a Jewish organization throughout AJC’s history? Is AJC an American-Jewish organization or a Jewish-American organization? How have the Holocaust and the State of Israel factored into AJC’s Jewish identity and work? How has AJC balanced individual Jewish identity versus Jewish communal life?
