Rabbi Lance J. Sussman, Ph.D.
The opening two decades of the 21st century are widely viewed as an inflection point in the modern Jewish experience. From 9-11 to Covid, dramatic changes in American Jewish life and Israel challenged the Jewish status quo in almost every dimension. In his new book, Portrait of an American Rabbi, Lance Sussman includes dozens of essays presented in chronological order of his experience as a pulpit rabbi and historian during this tumultuous period. In his Gratz Lunch and Learn, Rabbi Sussman will discuss his experiences and analyses of the reshaping of Jewish life in the early 21st century.
