Feibel Lecture 30th Anniversary - American Shtetl: Kiryas Joel, New York - a Hasidic Town in Suburban New York

January 30, 2018
Sunday, April 22, 2018 - 7:00pm
Columbus Jewish Community Center, 1125 College Ave., Columbus, Ohio, 43209
Feibel 30th Anniversary Lecture, April 22

On the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of the Annual Pearl and Troy Feibel Lecture on Judaism and Law


Featuring
David Myers, Professor of Jewish History, University of California Los Angeles
and
Nomi Stolzenberg, Professor of Law,  Gould School of Law, University of Southern California

 

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 BY FRIDAY, APRIL 20: Fireman.2@osu.edu

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.
