This week on Up Close, what makes Jews lose their sense of place? And what can give it back to them?
For Boston College Political Science Professor Alan Wolfe, the answer to where Jews should be comfortable is straightforward: in the diaspora, where they’ve primarily been for the past 2,000 years. We discuss his book, At Home in Exile: Why Diaspora is Good for the Jews.
And then, for Shira Dicker, finding comfort at an American college campus has been a bit of a challenge. She shares some of her experiences in a novella, The Jerusalem Lover.
