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

Echoes of the Borscht Belt
 
Artist's Tour
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)

Producer: ( Yeshiva University Museum)
Yeshiva University Museum
City: New York

Additional Notes:
From the 1920s through the 1960s, the Catskill Mountains, within easy driving distance of New York City, were a popular vacation destination for millions of Americans, many of them Jews. Known as the Borscht Belt, the resorts of Sullivan and Ulster County combined recreational activities with nighttime entertainment – especially stand-up comedy, which was born in the region's theaters and showrooms. At its peak during the post-WW II era, the region known as the Borscht Belt sustained more than six hundred year-round hotels, as well as over a thousand bungalow colonies and summer camps.

In this series of beautiful, richly textured, large-scale photographs, Marisa Scheinfeld documents the dramatic degradation of some of the most famous Borscht Belt hotels. The images reveal ghostly remnants of the glory years of the era, as well as powerful evidence of nature's claim on the resorts and their landscapes, and new uses to which the spaces have been put in recent years. Scheinfeld, who grew up in the region, began her documentary photo project in 2009; this exhibition marks the first time audiences can see her work on the large scale on which it was conceived. Echoes is complemented by original memorabilia and photographs from some of the Borscht Belt's most beloved hotels and resorts.

Additional Notes:
In conjunction with its foundation in 1973, Yeshiva University Museum commissioned ten scale models of historic synagogues. The models were constructed under the direction of leading scholars and historians, using the most up-to-date research and architectural information. The models were built with intricate architectural detail and with materials that richly evoke the original structures and their interiors. This exhibition marks the first time in two decades that the models have been on display as a group.

The ten synagogues reflect the geographic breadth of the Jewish world across the centuries, from the ancient Mediterranean - Dura-Europos in 3rd-century Syria and Beit Alpha in 6th-century Galilee - to modern America and Europe - Touro in 18th-century Newport and Tempio Israelitico in 19th-century Florence. Seven of the ten models are exhibited here, together with plans, photographs and selected correspondence that document the conception and process of the commission.
