The Field Family Lecture

From Hank Greenberg to
Heeb Magazine: The Evolution
of American Jewish Culture

DR. SHULY RUBIN SCHWARTZ,

Provost of the Jewish Theological Seminary, Irving Lehman Research Associate Professor of American Jewish History and Walter and Sarah Schlesinger Dean of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies.

Hank Greenberg, Molly Goldberg, Alexander Portnoy, Fran Drescher—all are American Jewish icons who have entered the American cultural mainstream. They remind us just how far we’ve come, in only a few generations,
as American Jews. As we look at the evolution of our integration into America, we’ll explore what makes us
Jewish in today’s world, and what it will take to ensure our Jewishness in the generations to come.
