The Chosen Wars: How Judaism Became an American Religion

Steven R. Weisman will be joined with his friend of many years, Walter Isaacson, to talk about his new book. This book tells the dramatic history of how Judaism redefined itself in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—the personalities that fought each other and shaped its evolution and, crucially, the force of the American dynamic that transformed an ancient religion. It also serves as a guide to the foreseeable future. The chosen wars rage on, but now, at least, we have a manual to help us fight them more mindfully.
