Democratization of Religion, Democratization of the Society

09. 10. 2018 19:00 - 21:00

Maisel Synagogue, Maiselova 10, Praha 1

The emergence and development of modern democratic values involved their emancipation from religion – in western societies, primarily from Christianity and Judaism. Religions in western society often adopt a democratic ethos and also help to shape it through their limited influence. But to what extent has this ethos imprinted itself on the structures of thought and the functioning of religious communities? Can religion be an agent of democracy even if it embodies principles that are inconsistent with democratic values? Or is religion an area of human experience where questions such as gender equality, authority or the functioning of institutions should be governed by other rules? A debate featuring William Cook (The State University in New York, USA) and Paul Cliteur (Leiden University, Netherlands). Moderated by Professor Pavel Hošek (Charles University, CZ). Part of the Festival of Democracy within the Forum 2000 Conference. In English. Limited capacity - reservation necessary at education@jewishmuseum.cz. Free admission.

Should We Get Packing? The Decline of Liberal Democracy and Rise of Antisemitism in Central Europe

07. 10. 2018 16:00 - 18:00

Maisel Synagogue, Maiselova 10, Praha 1

Anti-Semitism in Central Europe, somehow dormant for decades, is yet again back in the public sphere. In Hungary, Poland, but also in Slovakia, anti-Semitic motifs are used as an expedient tool in a search of a scapegoat who could be blamed for real, as well as, alleged domestic problems. Is a rising anti-Semitism a concomitant effect of the growing illiberalism? Will the Jews be yet again seen as ‘the Other’, as not part of the nation? Political leaders condoning anti-Semitism often keep very warm relations with Israel. How should a combination of anti-Semitism and pro-Zionism be explained? A debate featuring Shlomo Avineri (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, IL), Irena Kalhousová (LSE, UK), Konstanty Gebert (journalist, PL), and Martin Poliačik (politician, educator, SK). Moderated by Jan Fingerland (Czech Radio, CZ). Part of the Festival of Democracy within the Forum 2000 Conference. In English. Limited capacity – reservation necessary at education@jewishmuseum.cz. Free admission.
