New Jewish History Class starts Jan 23
Episodes in Modern Jewish History with Allan Arkush
January 23 and 30, February 6 and 13 at 7:00 pm at Temple Israel, Westport
A 4 session course with Professor Allan Arkush of Binghamton University.
What did Napoleon want from the Jews of Europe? How did the Jews of Russia react to the pogroms of 1881-82? Why did the British issue the Balfour Declaration of 1917? What did American Jews do for the Jews of Europe during World War II? Through careful examination of documents in Paul Mendes-Flohr and Jehuda Reinharz's The Jew in the Modern World and other original sources, we'll try to answer these and other questions about major turning points in modern Jewish history. Co-sponsored by The Conservative Synagogue and Beit Chaverim.
