Leadership Across Difference
How can we educate the next generation of student-leaders and emerging professionals to work across religious, racial, and political divides? How do Jewish tradition and historical experience speak to contemporary questions of justice and equality, pluralism and civil discourse? The UVA Jewish Studies Program is pleased to host Dean Risa Goluboff of the UVA Law School and Dean Ian Solomon of the UVA Batten School in a conversation with Prof. James Loeffler about Jewish values and commitments in American public life.
