Inaugural George Weidenfeld Lecture in Jewish History 2017 by Professor David Sorkin, Yale University.
In this lecture, David Sorkin, Professor of Jewish History at Yale University, will examine the involvement of Jewish communal and religious leaders in the processes of Jewish emancipation in Europe from the early modern period onwards. In questioning whether historians have developed effective explanations and categories to explain Jewish political participation he will propose a new analysis of Jewish politics from the 16th to the 20th centuries.
Attendance at this lecture is free, but advanced registration is required.
