Rabbi Brooks Susman will discuss the ideologies and trend that define our traditions and politics as Jews in this decade. Does our intellectual history offer signposts for action or excuses for postures?

Now retired, Rabbi Susman is the founding Rabbi of Congregation Kol Am in Freehold. Rabbi Susman is a Community Chaplain and volunteer on the Freehold Township Human Relations Council. He is also an adjunct professor at Brookdale Community College where he teaches philosophy, history, and bible as literature.

Funding has been made possible in part by a general operating support grant from the New
Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds
administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.

The Jewish Heritage Museum is located in the Mounts Corner Shopping Center, at 310 Mounts Corner Drive, Freehold, NJ, at the corner of Route 537 and Wemrock Road (between the
