December 7th in Brooklyn: "The Necessity of Exile" by Shaul Magid

Thursday, December 7th, at 7pm in Brooklyn:

Join us to celebrate the launch of Shaul Magid’s The Necessity of Exile: Essays From a Distance. Co-sponsored by Ayin Press, Community Bookstore, and the Center for New Jewish Culture, this event features Magid in conversation with Jewish Currents editor-at-large Peter Beinart.

What is exile? What is diaspora? What is Zionism? Jewish identity today has been shaped by prior generations’ answers to these questions, and the future of Jewish life will depend on how we respond to them in our own time. In The Necessity of Exile: Essays from a Distance, rabbi and scholar Shaul Magid offers an essential contribution to this intergenerational process, inviting us to rethink our current moment making use of religious and political resources from the Jewish tradition.
