The Center for Jewish Civilization invites you to join us for our annual Hal Israel Endowed Lecture in Jewish-Catholic Relations. RSVP on the CJC eventbrite today!
About the Event:
The Hal Israel Endowed Lectureship in Jewish-Catholic Relations is named in memory of Hal Israel (C’92) and seeks to facilitate dialogue and strengthen ties between Jews and Catholics. It explores the many ways in which members of these two faiths continue to replace ancient prejudices with cooperation and understanding in today’s world. We are excited to welcome Dr. Erica Lehrer to deliver this talk.
Dr. Erica Lehrer is an Associate Professor of History, Sociology, and Anthropology at Concordia University. Additionally, Dr. Lehrer holds the Canada Research Chair in Museum and Heritage Studies, and is Director of CaPSL (the Curating and Public Scholarship Lab). Her ethnographic monograph “Jewish Poland Revisited: Heritage Tourism in Unquiet Places” (Indiana 2013) was a finalist for both the American Jewish Book Awards and the Association for Jewish Studies Jordan Schnitzer Book Award.
