Talking Points: Can Journalists and Clergy Offer Wisdom About Our Public Discourse?

TALKING POINTS: CAN JOURNALISTS AND CLERGY OFFER WISDOM ABOUT OUR PUBLIC DISCOURSE?

Part of JTS’s Opening Season

April 6, 7:00 p.m. ET
In Person and Online

America faces a breakdown of civil society, amid crises of trust in venerable social and legal institutions. What is the proper role of journalists and clergy—two professions entrusted with public speech—when speaking about such breakdowns so often contributes to them?  Is there such a thing as a neutral observer, and is that even desirable?  These and many related questions will be tackled in a dialogue between Dahlia Lithwick, one of the nation’s most experienced legal writers and thinkers, and Rabbi Jan Uhrbach, her partner in the study of the Jewish ethical tradition. JTS Vice Chancellor for Religious Life Rabbi Gordon Tucker will moderate.
