My Jewish Experience: Voices from Europe

Hear from four Paideia fellows – Jews and non-Jews, men and women, communally involved and not – about what being engaged in Jewish issues means to them, and how they see the future of Jewish culture and ideas – as well as community and life – in their home countries.
