During the week of November 1-7, a compelling interview with Professor Jeffrey S. Gurock, author of Orthodox Jews in America, will air on Shalom TV, America's National Jewish Cable Network. Although several books have studied aspects of Orthodox Judaism in contemporary times, no one had written an overview of how Orthodoxy has evolved over the centuries, until Gurock. In Orthodox Jews in America, Gurock examines how Orthodox Jewish men and women have coped with the personal, familial, and communal challenges of religious freedom, economic opportunity, and social integration. His forthcoming Shalom TV interview will explore this fascinating history.
