Judaism Unbound, a project of the Institute for the Next Jewish Future, is a project that catalyzes and supports grassroots efforts by “disaffected but hopeful” American Jews to re-imagine and re-design Jewish life in America for the 21st Century. Access the Judaism Unbound website here.
Judaism Unbound produces a once-a-week podcast, runs an active facebook page, and features blog posts by fellows of the Institute for the Next Jewish Future and guests.
Judaism Unbound values the ways that you choose to connect to Judaism, whether through rituals steeped in millennia-old traditions or through entirely new paradigms that ancient Jewish texts never dreamed of; whether your Judaism includes participation in Jewish communal organizations or not; whether you live and breathe Jewishly 24/7 or you just want to connect once or twice a year; whether you think of yourself as Jewish, half-Jewish, Jewish-and-X, partly-Jewish, not-Jewish, or Jew-ish.
This project is just getting off the ground, and we welcome your feedback at Dan@nextjewishfuture.org or Lex@nextjewishfuture.org. You can also call us by phone at (773)-717-5350. Please let us know how we could be a more valuable Jewish resource for you, and, perhaps more importantly, how you could be a valuable Jewish resource for us and others. Let us know the ideas you have that you believe the Jewish world needs to try. Jump into our process of experimentation and discovery. Be a part of Judaism Unbound.
