Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood
The PJCC works in collaboration with other leading cultural and higher education institutions with the goal of bringing programs of the highest caliber and quality to the entire North Peninsula community, deepening adult Jewish engagement on the North Peninsula, and offering programs that create meaningful Jewish experiences for all who participate.
As with all PJCC activities, our programs and events welcome participants from all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
What is “Jewish Peoplehood”?
For millennia, the concept of Jewish Peoplehood has inspired, intrigued, and perplexed Jews and non-Jews alike across the globe. Are Jews defined by their culture? Can there be Jewishness without Judaism as a faith? Are Jews a nation? With the rise of Zionism and the birth of the modern Israeli state, how does the concept of a Jewish People change? Some wonder if the very act of wrestling with these complex and fascinating issues might not itself help define modern Jewishness.
We invite you to join us in this unique exploration, through an ambitious array of entertaining, thought-provoking, and innovative Jewish cultural programs at the PJCC. Thanks to the Jewish Peoplehood Initiative, the PJCC will offer high-profile events, lectures and artistic and educational activities for all age groups to elevate this age-old discussion to a new contemporary level.
As with all PJCC activities, our programs and events seek participants from all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
