On the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the Annual Pearl and Troy Feibel Lecture on Judaism and Law
In this talk, Professors Myers and Stolzenberg will explore the apparent anomaly of an officially recognized municipality in suburban New York that is made up almost entirely of Hasids. How does such a community come into to being? How did it skirt the vaunted separation of church and state? And why is it a profoundly American creation? These questions will be answered on a fascinating journey that leads from the mythic shtetl of "Fiddler on the Roof" to the hard-edged game of interest-group politics in America.
Free admission. RSVP: Fireman.email@example.com
Generously supported by the Pearl and Troy Feibel on Judaism and Law fund. Co-sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation of Columbus and OSU's Moritz College of Law.
