What role has philanthropy played in a democratic society, and how have American Jews used philanthropy to participate in American civic and political life? 

Join noted historian Lila Corwin Berman (Temple University and current Katz Center fellow) and political scientist Rob Reich (Stanford University) for a wide-ranging conversation on these and other questions in light of Dr. Berman’s book The American Jewish Philanthropic Complex: the History of a Multi-Billion Dollar Institution (Princeton University Press).


Presented by the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with the Jewish Studies program at Vanderbilt University and the Jewish Philanthropy Research Initiative. With support from the Lippman-Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah.
