On behalf of the Leo Baeck Fellowship Programme we would like to invite you to the International Conference
"Bund and Borders: German Jewish thinking between Faith and Power"
The conference describes the history of German Jewry in light of two principle ideas: the notion of a Bund between the Jewish people and God and the need to define this Bund (Hebrew: Brith) within geopolitical and social borders.
"Bund and Borders" relates to the ideas of key German Jewish scholars who formulated a language of dialogue and defined distinctions between state and religion, power and faith, operative language and its philosophy. With regard to these scholars the conference aims at defining a fruitful and promising relation between the notion of Bund, in its religious and political form, and borders, in its geo-political context, its social as well as methodological relevance.
