City: New York

Additional Notes:
Join us as we mark pride month by celebrating the publication of Changing Lives, Making History: CBST - The First Forty Years – CBSTs 40th Anniversary Book. This special program will host the books author, Rabbi Ayelet S. Cohen, and the author of its preface, Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, for a stimulating conversation on their longtime work at CBST. We will discuss the enduring and changing visions and missions of CBST as the first synagogue designated especially for LGBTQ Jews, the place, voice, and status of the LGBTQ Jewish community within the NYC Jewish community and the American Jewish community as a whole, the histories and intersections of Jewish and LGBTQ struggles for minority rights in NYC and in America.

“The story, or rather the stories in Changing Lives, Making History: Congregation Beit Simchat Torah illuminate 40 revolutionary and transformative years in the life of New York City. These past forty years have witnessed, among other things, the impact of AIDS, breakthroughs in reproductive technologies and the gay baby boom, the emergence of queer and trans movements, and major Supreme Court decisions in support of equal rights. Through it all, CBST has been at the epicenter.”

 Isaac Babel
 
Dmitry Bykov in Conversation with Jonathan Brent
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( YIVO Institute, the Russian American Foundation and RTVi)
YIVO Institute, the Russian American Foundation and RTVi
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Lionel Trilling wrote in 1955 that no event in the history of Soviet culture is more significant than the career, or, rather, the end of the career, of Isaac Babel. Notoriously secretive and evasive, a genius of style and literary compression, a Jew with spectacles who rode with the Cossack army of Semyon Budyonny in 1920, friend of Andrei Malraux and protege of Gorky, and the lover of the wife of Nikolai Yezhov (the Head of the NKVD), Babel is one of the great writers of the modern period whose life and work presents enduring enigmas. Arrested in 1939, Babel was shot in January, 1940. His manuscripts, diaries, journals, and letters were confiscated and have never been discovered in post-Soviet Russia.

Join prominent Russian poet, writer and journalist Dmitry Bykov and Jonathan Brent, Russian scholar and the Executive Director of the YIVO Institute, for an intimate conversation about Isaac Babel's Russian Jewish identity, his life, the myth of Babel, and his contribution to literature.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council.
