This Year’s Topic: Jewish Influence in the Secular World
Last year we focused our discussion on Jewish rituals and how they are viewed by the Jewish and non-Jewish world. This year, we turn the tables and ask the question, how has Judaism affected the non-Jewish world? Although some of the discussion will look at historical influences, much of the time will be spent on current interactions.
While I believe that most of the influence is positive, some of it may be negative.
We will look at Jewish influence in:
• Science and Technology
• Medicine and Healthcare
• Journalism and Media
• Art and Music
• Foreign Relations
