Standing Idly by is Not an Option: Creating “American Values, Religious Voices”
How did the 2016 election lead to the creation of a campaign that sent 100 letters from scholars of religion to our elected officials in Washington for the first 100 days of the Trump administration?
Rabbi Andrea L. Weiss, Ph. D., is Associate Professor of Bible at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York and was recently appointed as the incoming Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Provost. She served as campaign coordinator for “American Values Religious Voices: 100 Days. 100 Letters.” and as associate editor of The Torah: A Women’s Commentary (URJ Press, 2008). She is also the author of numerous books and articles on biblical poetry, metaphor and other topics.
This scholar-in-residence weekend is made possible through the Fred and Elsie Deutsch Endowment Fund. The Congregation would like to thank Roberta and Jim Deutsch, Judy and Larry Deutsch, and their families for their continuous generous support for the scholar-in-residence weekend.
