Barred Mitzvah: Jews and Ivy League Admissions
Guest Speaker: Mark Oppenheimer
What topic is more controversial, sensational, and endlessly captivating than college admissions? But if you want to understand everything that’s going on with college admissions today, you have to look at the first group that tried to diversify elite schools. You have to look at the Jews. Mark Oppenheimer tells the story of how Jews fought for acceptance at elite schools, and how the Jewish experience in the Ivy League shaped American higher education, and shaped America at large.
