Patriotism, Our Most Contested Virtue

Prof. Smith, Alfred Cowles Professor of Political Science at Yale has written about Spinoza, Lincoln, Leo Strauss and Isaiah Berlin. His new book about patriotism came out in February.

The concept of patriotism has fallen on hard times. What was once a value that united Americans has become so polarizing that it threatens to rip apart the social fabric. On the right, patriotism has become synonymous with nationalism, while on the left it is seen

as an impediment to cosmopolitan globalism. My purpose is to reclaim patriotism from both of these extremes by showing how it can be an ennobling virtue that democratic societies cannot afford to do without. Books are available for purchase in the B’nai Jacob office.

Dr. Siegfried Kra

Thursday, March 25, 2021 at 7pm on Zoom

An Interview on his Books, Inspired by his Exceptional Life

Dr. Siegfried Kra, long-time member of B’nai Jacob, is the author of many books, including “Twilight in Danzig”, “Dancer in the Garden”, and his new release, “Nine Lives”. This event will address how this young Jewish refugee from Hitler’s Europe overcame challenges to have a rich and meaningful life as a Yale physician, as reflected in his gripping autobiographical stories.
