"What If" in American Jewish History and Contemporary Jewish Life
 
Live Broadcast Begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)

Producer: ( The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University)

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Shown live on the Jewish Broadcast Service, this event will launch Professor Jeffrey S. Gurocks latest book, The Holocaust Averted: An Alternate History of American Jewry, 1938–1967 (Rutgers University Press).

The Holocaust Averted has already been lauded as a “provocative, path-breaking book… filled with familiar characters in unfamiliar and intriguing roles that is sure to challenge—and, quite possibly, to infuriate readers.”

This intriguing work considers what might have happened to the Jewish community in the United States if the Holocaust had never occurred and forces readers to contemplate how the road to acceptance and empowerment for todays American Jews could have been harder than it actually was.

Join the audience as Professor Gurock and Rabbi Golub explore many reasonable historical alternatives grounded in what is actually known about the tumultuous, catastrophic and climatic 30 years that bridge the beginnings of the Holocaust, the rise of the State of Israel and Israels triumph in the Six Day War, and what this novel approach to history tells about the real world that Jews live in today.

Book signing and collation to follow.

Additional Notes:
Join us for a book launch, reading, and screening to celebrate the translation of Yitzhak Gormezano-Gorens groundbreaking novel Alexandrian Summer into English.

For the occasion, we will premiere a documentary by renowned filmmaker and NYU alum Amit Goren (Year 66 was Good for Tourism), the son-in-law of Yitzhak Gormezano-Goren, who has put together a new documentary especially for this event. The film is based on the trip of the Gormezano-Goren family – based both in Tel-Aviv and in LA.

We will be honored to host, Egyptian-born, Israeli-based novelist and playwright Yitzhak Gormezano-Goren for this event, as well as Yale Comparative Literature Professor Hannan Hever, for a reading and conversation after the screening.

Alexandrian Summer will be the first translation from Gormezano-Gorens acclaimed work into English. A key figure in Mizrahi culture in Israel, Gormezano-Goren has written numerous novels, plays, and has founded the groundbreaking academic journal Direction: Eastward. First published in 1979 in Hebrew, Alexandrian Summer became a milestone in Mizrahi literature and culture in Israel: it tells the story of two Jewish families living their frenzied last days in the cosmopolitan social whirl of Alexandria just before migrating to Israel in 1951.

Presented in partnership with the Mizrahi Film Series, the Taub Center for Israel Studies, The Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Department, and the Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, New York University.

Additional Notes:
Sharply observed, beautifully rendered stories about gender, sexuality, and nationality by a fresh and original literary voice.”

Join us as we welcome Shelly Oria, a brilliant New York based Israeli author, to read from her best-selling debut New York 1, Tel Aviv 0, and talk to us about writing between the here and there of spaces and languages, about the amalgamating Israeli and American literary influences on her work, and more.

Enter the world of New York 1, Tel Aviv 0, where the characters are as intelligent and charming as they are lonely. A couple discovers the ability to stop time together; another couple lives with a constant, loud beeping in their apartment, though only one of them can hear it. A father leaves his daughter in Israel to pursue a painting career in New York; a sex worker falls in love with the Israeli photographer who studies her.
