We’re hosting the world’s leading scholars, creators, and Jewish communal leaders in a series of important lectures and dialogues about the American Jewish experience. For now, all events will be “virtual,” but additional seminars, films, and exhibits will be added when possible.
September 09, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Featuring Dr. Golan Moskowitz (Tulane University); Jonathan Greenblatt, Executive Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL); Dr. Jonathan Sarna (Brandeis University) and Dr. Magda Teter (Fordham University)
ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) has published a comprehensive new guide to contemporary antisemitism. Titled “Antisemitism Uncovered: A Guide to Old Myths in a New Era,” it offers a concise history of anti-Jewish hatred and explores seven myths that underpin it.
Dr. Golan Moskowitz (Tulane University) will moderate a conversation about the project's conception, its contents, and how it frames the state of antisemitism today. The distinguished panel includes Jonathan Greenblatt (National Director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League), Dr. Jonathan Sarna (Brandeis University) and Dr. Magda Teter (Fordham University).
Sponsors: Department of Jewish Studies and Grant Center for the American Jewish Experience
What does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America? Dr. Pamela S. Nadell will explore her groundbreaking history of how Jewish women maintained their identity and influenced social activism as they wrote themselves into American history. Dr. Nadell’s book won the National Jewish Book Award–Everett Family Foundation Jewish Book of the Year.
A fund for Lectures, Roundtables, and Films will bring internationally renowned speakers to the Grant Center. Our participants—artists, scholars, public intellectuals, communal leaders—will contribute to a robust conversation about Jewish culture, history, and ideas, to which the entire Tulane community is invited.
