This landmark Jewish publication was started in the 1970s by Leibel (Leonard) Fein with assistance from Elie Wiesel.
Historian and documentarian, Sir Simon Schama, author of The Story of the Jews, joins Robert Siegel, former NPR host of All Things Considered, for a wide-open conversation about history, Jewish culture, art and more.
When we interviewed a group of thinkers on the years that altered human history, we were floored by their thoughtful responses. While we had to condense their answers for the print issue, we have curated additional selections from their interviews, which we are so pleased to publish here.
In his editor’s note in the May 1975 inaugural issue of Moment, Fein set out the magazine’s mandate “that Moment will help raise the sense of Jewish possibility, hence also raise Jewish aspirations.”
