History of the Jews in Russia

Fridays 10:30AM - 11:45 AM Starting December 7th (Eight Weeks)

If your parents or grandparents came from Russia or the Pale of Settlement, you might be interested in tracing your roots or participating in a journey through time.  Russian Jewish presence goes back over two millenia.  Since the Middle Ages, the rapid and expansive growth of Eastern European Jewry established the Ashkenazi experience familiar to us: a rich literary and Yiddish cultural tradition, Talmudic erudition, the enlightenment, Zionism and other social movements.  With so many paths leading back to Russia, join our entourage as we explore this vast history.  Instructor: Marden Paru; fee $60.
