Event Details

We live in unprecedented times. On the one hand, American Jews’ sense of safety has been shaken to the core by the rising wave of anti-Semitism in our country and abroad. On the other hand, Jews continue to thrive disproportionate to their numbers in nearly every sector of the economy, the arts and education. How do we explain this dichotomy? How are Jews depicted in our society? Join Rabbi Balin for a weekend of study, inquiry and discussion.

Carole B. Balin is Professor Emerita of History at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, New York, her topics of publications range from Jewish women under the Tsars to the Maxwell House Haggadah. Balin curated the national traveling exhibit “Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age” and wrote and narrated the animated short “The Click Moment: Jewish Feminism 101.” She appears on PBS’ regularly-aired “The Jewish People: A Story of Survival,” blogs for the Huffington Post and lectures at synagogues and universities throughout the world. Balin is a member of the board of the Jewish Women’s Archive and is currently at work on a book on bat mitzvah in an increasingly gender-fluid world.
