Judaism versus Jewish Identity Politics: Religion versus Tribalism

Wednesday May 6th 7:30 pm Theatre 80
80 St. Marks Place, New York, NY

Two prominent thinkers, the ultra orthodox Rabbi Yaakov Shapiro, and philosopher, Jazz artist and ex-Jew Gilad Atzmon, meet to discuss hard questions about Judaism, Jewish politics and the meaning of Jewishness. This unique gathering, the first of its kind, promises to help you unravel the tangled web of secular Jewish politics, right and left.

After the discussion there will be a live Jazz jam session featuring some of New York City’s preeminent musicans 





Author Details
Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.” His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at Amazon.com
