A webinar with Dr. Michal Raucher, JTS fellow and assistant professor of Jewish Studies at Rutgers University.

Part of Times of Crisis and Possibility, an online series with JTS faculty and fellows.

This webinar examines the phenomenon of Jewish leaders Invoking the threat of a demographic crisis to implore young Jews to procreate at higher rates. Using biblical, rabbinic, and contemporary texts, Dr. Raucher considers what it would mean to think about Jewish continuity not solely in terms of creating more Jews but also cultivating and supporting the values central to our tradition.
