In a new weekly lecture series at the Tikvah Center, Professor Ruth Wisse will continue the journey she began in her earlier course on “The New York Intellectuals,” introducing more of the leading writers and thinkers of the golden age of American Jewry. These intellectuals tackled issues of Jewish particularism and assimilation, and where Jews belonged in American society. As the influence of fascism faded and new forms of anti-Zionism arose, they confronted anti-Semitism at home and abroad. They were thoroughly invested in Jewish life, and formed a distinctive intelligentsia that mediated between Europe and America, shaping American culture and discourse for decades to come.
