Symposium | American Jews and Zionism: Bringing Us Together and Pulling Us Apart


This symposium marks the Israel's 75th birthday by gathering twenty internationally recognized scholars at the Center for Jewish History to discuss the long relationship between the American Jewish community and the Zionist movement. Since the Jewish state's founding in 1948, American Jews have been stalwart supporters of Israel. But the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict and recent spike in domestic antisemitism have caused new splits to emerge among American Jews about the Zionist movement. Generationally as well as politically, American Jews appear to be more divided about Zionism than ever. Yet these divisions are hardly new. In fact, for nearly a century and a half, Zionism has been a source of contention, not just consensus, among Jews in the United States and around the world. The question of whether the Jewish people should be viewed as an ethnically defined nation or merely a religious community has been hotly contested within Jewish communities from the late 19th century to the present. American Jews and Zionism chronicles this long history in the effort to explain present-day tensions and opportunities in the relationship between the American Jewish community and the State of Israel. The symposium, which is organized in partnership with the National Library of Israel, is the first installment in a larger series of public symposia sponsored by the Center for Jewish History's brand new Jewish Public History Forum. Visit the Jewish Public History Forum website to learn more about the forum and the schedule of future symposia.

Lecture | Jewish Life in Poland-Lithuania (online)


Learn about why Jews settled in Eastern Europe and what their lives looked like there through the centuries. The Eldridge Street Synagogue, which now houses the Museum at Eldridge Street, was built by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe in 1887 to herald their new life in America, and their pride in their faith and their heritage. Millions of Jews fled Eastern Europe to the United States in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but how did they end up in Eastern Europe to begin with? Approximately eighty percent of the world's Jews have a connection to Eastern Europe, and all of them once lived in a unique country called the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Zachary Mazur, Senior Historian at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, discusses the key question of why Jews settled in Eastern Europe and what their lives looked like there. While discussing the larger historical narrative, we will focus on the stories of those living in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to paint a picture of the past long before emigration or the Holocaust. This virtual seminar will be a journey through 1000 years of the history of Jews in Poland from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Film | Hadik (2023): Hungarian Historical Adventure


A thriling new Hungarian movie tells the story of the most daring adventure of the 18th century when the Hungarian Hussar General Andras Hadik was sent by Queen Maria Theresa to take Berlin for the great humiliation of the Prussian king, Frederick the Great. The movie is about overcoming the most dire of circumstances in order to achieve something seemingly impossible. As Hadik was sent on this mission with a dysfunctional team it is also a story of finding our common qualities instead of focusing on our differences in order to achieve wonders. An ultimate multicultural European adventure where the greatest Hungarian general married to a Polish princess serving the Austrian Queen stops the aggressive Prussian conquerors with a ragtag team of Hungarian, Saxon, Austrian and Croatian misfit soldiers. Director: Janos Szikora In Hungarian with English subtitles After the screening the audience will have the chance to meet actress Lili Bordan, who portrays Queen Elizabeth of Prussia in the movie.

Play | White Bitches in Delhi: A Farce on Arranged Marriages


In Ellis Abigail Stump's play, while studying abroad at Delhi University, two obliviously privileged, proudly queer NYC college kids discover Shaadi.com, a matchmaking app like Tinder, but run by the parents. To "help" their Indian-American bestie find true love—and pay off their loans with the dowry money—they decide to arrange a traditional marriage, taking "chosen family" one step too far. A farce with heart, sending up both Hollywood and Bollywood rom-com tropes, White Bitches in Delhi explores the savior complex, class and identity, internally and externally imposed stereotypes, and when it's time to BeReal.
