Hebrew College Educational Series 2016
“For the Love of God and Country: Jews, American Religion & the 2016 Presidential Election in Historical Context”
Featuring Jonathan Golden, PhD, Senior Professional Development Advisor & American history teacher, Gann Academy
November 12 at Congregation Mishkan Tefila
384 Harvard Street, Brookline, following Shabbat services
How did American Jews vote in 2016 and how does the 2016 Jewish vote compare with past presidential elections? We will explore these questions through exit polls, the Pew Research Center’s Portrait of American Jews, and broader voting patterns of other American religious groups.
Over his 16 years at Gann, Jonathan Golden has taught AP American History, chaired the History Department, and served as Assistant Head of School and Director of Academic Operations. A 1995 graduate of Princeton University, he received his MJEd from Hebrew College and PhD from Brandeis University. At Brandeis, he studied American Jewish history under the tutelage of Professor Jonathan Sarna and wrote a dissertation entitled From Cooperation to Confrontation: The Rise and Fall of the Synagogue Council of America. In 2007, he was the recipient of Hebrew College’s Sydney Hillson Memorial Award for Distinguished Leadership in and Commitment to Jewish Education. In 2014, he received the AJC Boston Young Leadership Award. He is the Chair of AJC ACCESS Boston, the young leadership division of the American Jewish Committee’s Boston office. Golden also serves on the Board of Directors for Camp Yavneh which he attended for 13 summers as a camper and counselor.
