AN EXCITING NEW PROGRAM SERIES

“Misunderstanding of the present is the inevitable consequence of ignorance of the past.” —Marc Bloch

We live in an era of perplexity that is full of historical change. How can we mine the past to comprehend our present moment better?

History Matters will bring prominent historians to the Center for Jewish History to reflect on the complex connections between the past and present. In putting historical scholarship into dialogue with present-day concerns, this series will highlight the importance of history—and especially Jewish history—in public discourse.

Join us for HISTORY MATTERS, an exciting new series, at the Center for Jewish History, where the past comes alive!
