Webinar: Memories of Migration: Between the Personal and the Collective Experience
The large-scale migration of Jews across continents and oceans is one of the most characteristic features of the modern Jewish narrative. What do we now know about the reasons and the circumstances that guided millions of Jewish migrants around the globe? What has been the role of the United States, its Jewish community, and other countries around the world in these migrations? American Friends of the Hebrew University presents Memories of Migration: Between the Personal and the Collective with Professor Eli Lederhendler, the Stephen S. Wise Professor of American Jewish History and Institutions at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and chair of the Department of Jewish History and Contemporary Jewry. Special thanks to our co-sponsor, the Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington.
