Seekers of Meaning 5/6/2022: David Bernstein, founder of the Jewish Institute for Liberal Values

On this week’s episode of the Seekers of Meaning TV Show and Podcast, David Bernstein, founder of the Jewish Institute of Liberal Values, discusses the Institute’s work in encouraging principled debate over political and social issues.

Currently, the response to Critical Social Justice has been mixed in the Jewish world. There are Jewish groups that firmly oppose or ignore CSJ. There are groups that enthusiastically endorse it. And there are many mainstream Jewish organizations — national and local — that have yet to develop a clearly defined position. The Jewish Institute for Liberal Values will help Jewish organizations and individuals hold constructive conversations about CSJ and ensure balanced approaches.
