Topic: Non-Jewish Poles doing Jewish stuff... and the Jews who hate them
Speaker: Professor Erica Lehrer
Temple Sinai Congregation of Toronto
210 Wilson Avenue, Toronto
8:00 pm (doors open 7:30 pm)
This program is co sponsored by the Polish-Jewish Heritage Foundation of Canada - Toronto Chapter
The Jewish heritage revival in Poland is a phenomenon that has attracted a great deal of attention and provoked many controversies. Described as the world’s largest Jewish cemetery and the realm of “virtual Jewishness,” Poland is a space where the non-Jewish interest in things Jewish has been looked upon with particular skepticism.
American cultural anthropologist Professor Erica Lehrer ventures into this territory, both fascinating and fraught with tension, giving a fresh glimpse into the backstage of the Jewish heritage industry.
