Jewish History Lectures Begin Next Week

Good morning fellow students of Jewish History!

Really excited to be starting the Spring Semester of Jewish History Lectures next week–it’s going to be a busy February, but I’m certainly looking forward to speaking with you about these fascinating topics! Here’s a quick list of what, where, and when. Unfortunately not all of these lectures will be available on video, so please come in person if you can! Just one thing: no hard questions, please.
