Professor Bruce Haynes speaks about the lived experiences, now and historically, of Jews of Color (JOC) and situates the issue in the context of racialization and race thinking. Professor Bruce Phillips presents the 10,000 feet view, using the Pew 2013 & 2020, and other studies, and investigating the questions these studies used to identify JOC. From there, the conversation unfolds.
