Beyond Virtually Jewish: New Realities and Real Imaginary Spaces – A lecture by Ruth Ellen Gruber
February 26, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Ruth discusses new forms of Jewishness, Jewish practice, and religious and cultural expression. She describes how she coined the term “Virtually Jewish” to describe non-Jewish involvement, embrace, appropriation and engagement with Jews and Jewish culture — and what that means in today’s changing conditions. She discusses new realities and new authenticities; new definitions of “Jewish.” And she takes her audience on tours to Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter of Krakow, and other Jewish spaces and places where community and commercialism combine and collide.
This event is free and open to the public.
