Judaism 3.0 with Author Gol Kalev
Sunday, March 20 @12:00pm-1:00pm
Join the Israel Engagement Committee for a virtual lecture featuring Gol Kalev, author of Judaism 3.0.
With resounding endorsement from Natan Sharansky, Michael Oren and others, Gol Kalev’s new book is triggering a conversation in the Jewish community.
In this landmark book, Gol Kalev demonstrates how Zionism has turned into the organizing principle of Judaism. It has become the primary conduit through which both Jews and non-Jews relate to Judaism – in both the positive and negative.
Through an in-depth analysis of long-term shifts in Israel and in North American Jewry, as well as assessment of global trends that impact Judaism, Kalev shows that the anchor of the Jewish nation-religion has shifted from its religious aspect (Judaism 2.0) to its national aspect (Judaism 3.0).
Tying Theodor Herzl’s original vision of Zionism to today’s realities, Kalev shows that Judaism 3.0 is not only the most accurate reflection of the contemporary state of Judaism, but also the relevant framework to address emerging threats to Judaism. First and foremost, the existential threat of Israel-bashing, which has replaced anti-Semitism as the primary currency of age-old opposition to Judaism.
