Interview with Dr. Shepard Forman

By Shari Cohen

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2000

Dr. Shepard Forman, Director of the Center on International Cooperation at New York University, talks about his personal and professional concern with the universalist and particularist aspects of Jewish identity. In particular, the conversation explores how the unusual experience of writing a Haggadah for the Makassae of East Timor, as part of his field work there in 1973-74, led him on a path that helped him better understand the place of Jewishness in his own life.
