Author Reading | Julia Mickenberg discusses her book American Girls in Red Russia: Chasing the Soviet Dream


This collective biography recounts the hopes, experiences, and grave disappointments of US women who campaigned for “Russian freedom”; who saved sickly, starving children from the Russian famine; who worked on rural communes in Siberia or wrote for Moscow newspapers; and who performed on Soviet stages. It recalls US women who survived the Great Terror and who celebrated their Soviet counterparts during the war. And, in light of both the Cold War and our current moment, it demands we come to terms with their legacy.

Enjoy an enchanting Chanukah experience for the whole family. Let There Be Light! Menorahs from the Collection of the Lori and David Moore Family features an arry of menorahs from the collection of the Lori and David Moore family that show just how many ways there are to light up the holiday. Lori and David Moore began buying menorahs as a way to provide their son and daughter with a holiday tradition, mirroring other families’ yearly holiday trips to pick out Christmas trees or special ornaments. Over the years, they collected more than 150 menorahs, many of which will be displayed in the Museum leading up to and during Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. The collection ranges from the traditional to the very whimsical. Designs include an American flag menorah, which Mr. Moore bought after September 11, 2001; traditional Chanukah lamps from around the world; and menorahs that take playful forms, including a shoe, a dog and an oversized book of matches. A menorah made of mah jongg tiles is a perfect match for our synagogue site, which is located in what is now the heart of Chinatown.

Author Reading | Joanna Dee Das discusses her book Katherine Dunham: Dance and the African Diaspora


In her new book, Joanna Dee Das argues that Dunham was more than a dancer - she was a feminist intellectual and activist who used dance to fight for racial justice. Dunham saw dance as a tool of liberation, as a way for people of African descent to reclaim their history and forge a new future. Through her performances, through the schools she established in St Louis, Chicago, and New York, and through her diverse network of admirers, including George Balanchine, Eartha Kitt, Marlon Brando, and Alvin Ailey, Dunham changed America.

Discussion | The End of Jamaica, the End of Merkel? Analyzing What Happened, Predicting What Lies Ahead


To the surprise of many political observers, late on Sunday night, November 19, the FDP walked out on talks about forming a coalition government with the CDU/CSU and the Greens. More than two months after the election, Germany is still without a new government - and questions abound. This panel of distinguished experts discusses the ramifications of the failed coalition negotiations and what lies ahead. Will there be snap elections? Will Angela Merkel form a minority government? What does this mean for Europe and for Germany’s role in the world? Why are the Social Democrats so adamantly opposed to joining another grand coalition? Will all of this strengthen the far-right AfD? And, is this the beginning of the end of the Merkel era?
