Our version of a Jewish-American “Stuff You Missed in History Class”! In 10 engaging sessions, learners will discuss seminal developments in American life, such as the Jewish contributions to American culture, American literature, and the Civil Rights Movement, through the lens of Jews straddling their status as both insiders and outsiders. The course will also examine antisemitism and the Holocaust, and the changing place of Zionism in the shaping of Jewish American identity. Sharing tales from immigrants, their children, and grandchildren, learners will debate the meaning of this ongoing saga.
This course is offered by the Florence Melton School at the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater. For more information contact Sierra Lautman, Director of Jewish Innovation at SLautman@ujft.org or 757-965-6107
