Welcome to the American Scripture Project, a program that will bring your congregation together to grapple with our country’s historic writing, confront the tensions present in our historical foundations and contemporary context, and deepen a conversation around what it means to be an American — and to be Jewish — in the 21st century.

This program, two series, both consisting of six sessions, each focused on a seminal American text, turns to what we can agree upon: America is built upon transformative ideas, beautiful pieces of writing, and passionate voices from all perspectives. Combining the Jewish habits of parshanut with the rich treasury of American texts will inspire and reteach how complex narratives can unify us as a community of Americans.
