Baruch College Presents Trouble in the Tribe Book Event

Free Author Talk & Discussion on Thursday, September 29 at 5:30 p.m.


NEW YORK, NY- September 20, 2016-The Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center and the Department of Political Science at Baruch College present Trouble in the Tribe with Dov Waxman, author and Professor of Political Science at Northeastern University. This event is free and open to the public. R.S.V.P. is required.

The critically acclaimed book, Trouble in the Tribe, explores the increasingly contentious place of Israel in the American Jewish community. In a fundamental shift, growing numbers of American Jews have become less willing to unquestioningly support Israel and more willing to publicly criticize its government. Professor Waxman argues that Israel is fast becoming a source of disunity for American Jewry, and that a new era of American Jewish conflict over Israel is replacing the old era of solidarity. Professor Waxman sets this conflict in the context of broader cultural, political, institutional, and demographic changes happening in the American Jewish community. He offers a nuanced and balanced account of how this conflict over Israel has developed and what it means for the future of American Jewish politics.
