How did cultural assimilation and secularization shape the relationships between Jewish youth, Jewish communal institutions, and with older generations?

Did young Jews who spoke national languages and who were educated in state schools represent a break from traditional East European Jewish identity?

How did antisemitism and anti-Jewish violence affect their ideological choices, their intellectual interests, and their personal trajectories? 

Professor Natalia Aleksiun of Touro College explores these key questions about the complex experiences of Jewish men and women who came of age in Eastern Europe before the Holocaust. 

This members-only lecture will be followed by an object talk in the Museum's Core Exhibition and a lunch discussion. 

$36 (includes lunch)
