Jews and the American Public Square is a three-year program of communal dialogue,
research and publication designed to explore the theme of religion and the public square
in the context of the American Jewish experience.
The program seeks to foster a
greater public understanding of the religious voice in the ongoing conversation concerning the
renewal of American democracy, and to help educate the academic community
as well as the American public at large about the various ways in which people of faith participate in
American civic life, and of the important role religion continues to play in shaping the public square.
