Joan & Henry Katz Lecture in Judaic Studies - “I Need Ammunition, Not a Lift”: Jews and the Ukrainian Question at a Time of War”
Time: 07:30 PM
Location: Kelley Center Presentation Room
We are excited to announce Dr. Marci Shore, Associate Professor of History, Yale University will give the Joan and Henry Katz Lecture “I Need Ammunition, Not a Lift”: Jews and the Ukrainian Question at a Time of War.”
A hundred years after Scholem Aleichem and Isaac Babel wrote of timid Jewish tailors and emasculated yeshiva boys and Bruno Schulz painted hunched Jewish men, sometimes crawling, shunned by coldly enticing women, Jews are making the pilgrimage from the Pale of Settlement to Jerusalem in reverse. Israeli Defense Force veterans are training Ukrainian soldiers. Hasids are wearing vyshyvankas under their tefillin. And as Europe hovers on the edge of the third world war, a Russian-speaking Jewish comedian accused of being a Ukrainian Nazi has stepped into the role of Winston Churchill.
