Rabbi Dr. Jacob J. Schacter, University Professor of Jewish History and Jewish Thought and Senior Scholar at the Center for the Jewish Future, will be a presenter at the Orthodox Union’s One-Day Conference on Jewish Life on Sunday, January 16, 2011, in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. He will be discussing how the Orthodox community can play a significant role in the building and future development of American Jewry, including the current challenges and opportunities. Schacter will also address the significance of the fact that, at this point, it appears that Orthodox Jewry makes up the largest demographic of affiliated American Jews under the age of thirty and what this means for the present and for the future.
