7:30pm Cancel Culture through a Jewish Lens
Tuesday

Zoom Session

Whether it's Dr. Seuss, J.K. Rowling, or Mr. Potato Head, allegations of cancel culture seem to dominate the recent headlines. Fueled by social media, cancel culture has earned a consistent spot in the news cycle this past year. Yet the exact meaning of this phenomenon and movement is still up for debate as society weighs the balance of free speech and accountability. In our latest Jonathan Samen Hot Buttons, Cool Conversations discussion series, we examine the spirit of cancel culture and how it relates to Jewish values. With the rise in anti-Semitism, we explore how we may educate and forgive instead of simply canceling. We will examine when cancellation is merited and when it is insufficient or even harmful. This discussion is free and open to the public and in collaboration with WGBH.

Rabbi Irwin Kula, Panelist
Rabbi Irwin Kula, is the Co-President of Clal, The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership.

Andrew Rehfeld, Panelist
Andrew Rehfeld, is the President of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.
