SJE Meeting to be held online!

Updated: Jan 3

The 20th annual meeting of the Society of Jewish Ethics (SJE) will take place over Zoom, January 5-9, 2022. If you already registered for the in-person meeting, we have refunded your registration fees. We very much hope that you'll still be able to join us for the virtual conference. And if you didn't register for the in-person conference, we hope you'll decide to join us virtually! You can register here. Join us on Wednesday at 4:00 PM Pacific time for a "welcome schmooze" to check in with friends and colleagues. The SJE's six sessions will begin on Thursday at 10:00 AM Pacific time. You can find the schedule for the SJE meeting here. Please keep in mind that the schedule is in pacific time, so you'll need to adjust for your own location. You will receive a meeting link and password a day before the conference. If you are registered, you will also receive the link each morning of the conference. If you need us to send it to you again, please reach out to admin@societyofjewishethics.org or michal.raucher@rutgers.edu. In addition to an intellectually stimulating and diverse selection of papers, this year’s conference will include an SJE plenary. Dr. Samira Mehta (University of Colorado, Boulder) will deliver an address titled, “Amid the Other Others: Jews and the Navigation of Race in the United States.” Drawing on both Dr. Mehta’s expertise as a scholar of American Judaism in the broader context of post-WWII American religion, and her identity as a Jew and scholar of color, this talk explores the perils and possibilities of Jews amidst the Other Others. The SJE is committed to making the conference financially accessible for those who are giving a paper or want to attend. We have significantly reduced our registration fees for the virtual conference. All those who are employed full time will pay $75 to access all parts of the conference. Everyone else will be able to attend the conference at no cost. We are grateful to all who can make a donation to help support scholarships and graduate students attending the conference. We hope that, while you register for the conference, you will also make a donation to the SJE or to our Adrienne Asch scholarship.

On Sunday’s business meeting we will vote on some important updates to the SJE by-laws. Our bylaws have not been updated in several years, and it is important that they reflect our values and our growth as an organization. Our by-laws are visible only to members of the SJE. You can join or renew your membership on our website and then log into the website and view our by-laws here.

Thank you to our conference co-chairs, Adrienne Krone and Aryeh Cohen. If you have any questions about the conference, you can send them an email at sjeprogramchairs@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you over Zoom!
