First there was the book . . .
Then there was the show . . .
Now comes the conversation!
JOIN RABBI LUBLINER FOR A TWO-PART DISCUSSION ON THE BLOCKBUSTER NETFLIX MINISERIES, UNORTHODOX.
Part Two: “You Can Check Out Anytime You Like, But You Can Never Leave” – a Conversation with Professor Schneur Zalman Newfield
Raised within the Lubavitch Hasidic community, Professor Schneur Zalman Newfield left the world of ultra-Orthodoxy as a young man. A faculty member of Manhattan Community College, Newfield earned his Ph.D in sociology from New York University. He has just published a book entitled Degrees of Separation: Identity Formation while leaving Ultra-Orthodox Judaism. Professor Newfield will share his take on the accuracy of Unorthodox and the challenges of transitioning from one world to another.
