Congregation Agudat Achim’s Adult Education Committee announces a series of six fascinating lectures with Dr. Stephen Berk, professor of history at Union College and Scholar-in-Residence at Congregation Agudat Achim for more than 30 years.
Come join us this fall for Dr. Stephen Berk’s newest lecture series, Going and Coming: A history of Jewish Emigration and Immigration.
Jews have always been on the move. Their migrations were always a consequence of push and pull. Something pushed the Jews out and something pulled them in. When one center of Jewish gravity closed another opened up. Emigration and Immigration are the constants of Jewish history. This is their story over the last millennium.
The dates of the lecture series are: Thursdays, Sept: 8, 15, 22, 29, Oct: 6, 13
