Exhibit on Jewish Life in Germany Today

jewishlifeTogether with my colleagues Martin Blatt (History), Jennifer Sartori (Jewish Studies), and Diana Erinna (World Languages) – and with sponsorship from the German Embassy in Washington D.C. – I curated a series of events on the topic of Jewish life in Germany today. At the heart of these events is an exhibit that features biographical sketches screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-12-25-15-pmof Jews in Germany that sets out to invite a debate about how the Jewish community was able to rebuild in the ‘country of perpetrators’. The exhibit runs until January 2017. An opening reception featured a panel of speakers – Rabbi Ron Fish, Journalist Toby Axelrod, and Professor of Architecture Peter Wiederspahn – who discussed the promise, success, but also setbacks for Jews living in Germany today. A write up of this event and the exhibit can be found here.
