Hidden Heretics: Jewish Doubt in the Digital Age

November 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

What would you do if you questioned your religious faith, but revealing your doubts would cause you to lose your family and the only way of life you had ever known? In her new book, Prof. Fader tells the fascinating, often heart-wrenching stories of married ultra-Orthodox Jewish men and women in 21st century New York who lead “double lives” in order to protect those they love. While they no longer believe fully, these hidden heretics continue to live in their families and religious communities, even as they surreptitiously break Jewish commandments and explore forbidden secular worlds in person and online.

Dr. Ayala Fader is a professor of anthropology at Fordham University. This virtual event is part of our Cultural Arts & Jewish Heritage Speaker Series.
