Discussion Guide: Social Movements

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2012

Sh'ma offers its readers questions to delve further into the ideas discussed in this issue. Including: What role have social movements â€" Jewish or not â€" played historically in Jewish collective identity? Can Zionism, as a movement, regain a place in raising questions about the meaning of Jewish identity and collectivity at a moment of great political and cultural transformations? How have music, photography, film, and other genres of art influenced social transformation? Have today's "change movements" relied on earlier models or has the paradigm for change shifted fundamentally? Do movements need to last, or can they make a brief appearance and still have some lasting impact?
