Commissar
 
World War I -- Jewish Experience in the Trenches and at the Home Front
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( Center for Jewish History, American Jewish Historical Society and Leo Baeck Institute)
Center for Jewish History, American Jewish Historical Society and Leo Baeck Institute
City: New York

Additional Notes:
was made by Aleksandr Askoldov in 1967, but was banned by Soviet censors for 20 years. The reason is the films sympathetic depiction of Jews. Commissar is a heartbreaking story of a Jewish family in backwater Ukrainian shtetl ravaged by war and pogroms. When a female commissar fighting in the Red Army gets pregnant, the Jewish family takes her in, as she is expecting to give birth and to return to the front. The film is remarkable for its beautiful cinematography, contrasting the domestic Jewish life with powerful images of the Russian Civil War.

Discussant: Jonathan Brent, Executive Director, YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

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

Modeling the Flood Story

Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( Yeshiva University Museum in cooperation with Yeshiva College and the Bernard Revel Graduate School )
Yeshiva University Museum in cooperation with Yeshiva College and the Bernard Revel Graduate School
City: New York

Additional Notes:
How has the idea of a cataclysmic flood been imagined and represented? In what ways has the story been reinterpreted over time? How have writers and artists responded to the narrative in its religious and cultural context? In what ways does the flood story have resonance today? Speakers from various disciplines will address the flood narratives from the Ancient Near East and the Hebrew Bible, and how the biblical story has been read, interpreted, reconstructed – and modeled – through midrash, medieval and modern texts, art, and film. The program complements the YUM exhibition Modeling the Synagogue – from Dura to Touro. A curatorial tour of the exhibition will precede the program.
