Launched in the Spring of 2023, the Jewish Public History Forum sponsors major public symposia on historical topics of contemporary relevance. The Forum seeks to be a big tent that brings scholars from different social, political, and cultural backgrounds into conversation about the past’s relationship to the present. The Forum is committed to sustaining the Center for Jewish History’s reputation for academic excellence and integrity while bringing scholarly insights to the broader public. The Forum brings the Center’s five partners – the American Jewish Historical Society, the American Sephardi Federation, the Leo Baeck Institute, the Yeshiva University Museum, and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research – together in conceptualizing, developing, and coordinating projects of collective interest. By fostering intra-organizational work, the Forum helps the Center for Jewish History realize its original vision to be a collaborative institution for Jewish historical research and education.
