Talk | Saint Joseph Steps Out of the Shadows (in-person and online)


Joseph, the husband of Mary, is a shadowy figure in the New Testament. The angel speaks to Joseph in Matthew's gospel, instructing him to flee from King Herod to Egypt, just as Joseph his namesake went down to Egypt centuries before. The story of the saint is elaborated in a second-century, semi-legendary narrative attributed to James, where the staff of Joseph, an elderly widower, miraculously blossoms as a sign of his fatherly role in the life of Christ and the salvation of the world. This presentation looks at various representations of the saint and examines his narrative critically through works of art. With art historian Dennis Raverty.

Lecture | When Does Anti-Zionism Become Antisemitism? (online)


Dina Porat, professor of Jewish History at Tel Aviv University and chief historian of Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Memorial Center, gives a timely lecture addressing the urgent question of the roots and history of the term "anti-Zionism" and its relationship to antisemitism. A distinction is drawn between objections to Zionism within the framework of the Jewish people and the use and abuse of the term as a political tool in the public international arena, which may be expressed with antisemitic motifs and images. The following topics and questions, among others, will be covered: -- The untold role of the Soviet Union in disseminating anti-Zionism, and the impact of its efforts -- Anti-Zionism before and after the Six Days War -- The Durban 2001 conference as a turning point: associating Jews with Israelis and antisemitism with anti-Zionism -- The aftermath of the October 7 Hamas attacks on Israel and the resurgence of world antisemitism -- When and how does legitimate criticism of Israel's government and policies cross the line to anti-Zionism? -- Discussions, protests and demonstrations on college campuses and elsewhere -- What is known about the funding of antisemitic and anti-Zionist activities

Jazz | Art of the Solo Performance


The student performers in this ensemble will showcase the art and practice of solo performance, from individual solo works to presentations of concert length programs, with a high degree of improvised material combined with careful preparation. Students have developed work based on thematic and structural elements, using both song form and open form improvisation, and have explored the ways these ideas can be combined. Players of single line instruments, vocalists, and percussion - as well as players of chordal instruments, which have the longest tradition of solo performance - are all welcome. Students recompose standards in a personal way to enhance a solo performance. The work of important solo improvisors like Cecil Taylor, Marilyn Crispell, Charmaine Lee, Evan Parker, Max Roach, Sylvie Courvoisier, Mary Halvorson, Anthony Braxton, Ikue Mori, and Thelonious Monk are mined for inspiration.

Discussion | YIVO Yiddish Club (online)


An event for Yiddish enthusiasts the world over, the YIVO Yiddish club is an informal monthly gathering to celebrate Mame-loshn. Hosted by Shane Baker, sessions take place in English, and are liberally peppered with Yiddish. Each month Baker is joined by a different guest who discusses their work and a related Yiddish cultural theme. In the spirit of a club, sessions are held as interactive zoom meetings in which participants can see and hear one another. Each session includes ample time for audience questions, group discussion, and, time permitting, knock-down, drag-out arguments. Attendees need not know any Yiddish to attend, though some familiarity with the language is highly recommended. This session features actor, singer, and filmmaker, Dylan Seders Hoffman. She is the founder and artistic director of Chava Productions, a film production company which presents original works located at the intersection of pop culture and 21st century Jewishness with a generous dose of Yiddish. Chava Productions' first short film Yiddish Mean Girls premiered in the fall of 2022. As an actor, she has performed Off-Broadway with the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, including in their New York Times Critic's Pick production The Sorceress, with the New Yiddish Rep, and at the New York Theatre Festival.

Book Discussion | Elie Wiesel: Confronting the Silence


Author, and speaker Joe Berger in conversation with Clyde Haberman. They will be discussing Berger's new book on author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel. As an orphaned survivor and witness to the horrors of Auschwitz, Elie Wiesel (1928-2016) compelled the world to confront the Holocaust with his searing memoir Night. How did this soft-spoken man from a small Carpathian town become such an influential figure on the world stage? Drawing on Wiesel's prodigious literary output and interviews with his family, friends, scholars, and critics, Joseph Berger seeks to answer this question.
