A ‘meme’ is an idea or behaviour that spreads from person to person within a culture. Looking at Judaism as a meme competing with other memes in our surrounding society, we will analyse what is working and failing in Sydney and speculate on the future of Judaism in 2050 and beyond. How can we effectively transmit Jewish culture, texts, and values to the next generation? What reason are we giving people to still be Jewish in 2050?
