Jews Without Apology: Some Lessons from My Years at Harvard

with Ruth Wisse, Harvard University (emeritus) and The Tikvah Fund

The campus culture has inordinately focused on narratives of victimhood. Jews have certainly suffered their share of mistreatment, and anti-Semitism seems to be alive and well. But the only true and enduring recipe for Jewish flourishing—in college and beyond—is Jewish self-confidence: the educated belief that being a Jew and being a Zionist is never a reason to apologize. Professor Ruth Wisse, a pioneering scholar of Jewish literature and an important voice in debates on Jewish politics, will pass along some hard-won wisdom from her decades at Harvard about the nature of Jewish courage and the riches of Jewish civilization that await any eager student who seeks them.
