This talk was the keynote lecture for the “Reimagining Jewish Life in the Modern Middle East, 1800-Present: Culture, Society, and History” Workshop. The workshop studied Jewish populations in the region of the Middle East and North Africa as part of the local societies and immediate environment, and not as isolated communities. The 35 participants of the workshop came from the MENA region, Europe, and North America, with expertise in all the studied societies, languages, and religious and cultural traditions. This was the second workshop, and the first in-person, and during this meeting we they worked toward the collaborative writing of a multi-author monograph.
The workshop was co-sponsored by Penn State Department of History, Penn State LA College of the Liberal Arts Dean’s Office, Penn State Jewish Studies Program, The Herzog Center at Ben-Gurion University, and The University of Chicago.
