  • Up Close: March 17, 2014

    This week on Up Close, we’re talking about what “Reform” means in the context of American Judaism and American Islam.

    Steven I. Weiss sits down with Ranya Tabari Idliby, the author of Burqas, Baseball and Apple Pie: Being Muslim in America, to talk about her ideas for creating a progressive, American Islam.

    Then, we’re joined by Rabbi Dana Evan Kaplan, author of The New Reform Judaism: Challenges and Reflections, in which he argues that American Jews need a more defined and purposeful Reform Judaism, that’s more than the “default” Jewish denomination.
