Presentation will focus on how modernization affected the lives and choices of the early nineteenth century Jews of Prussia. This event is scheduled in anticipation of the November 7 staged reading of Ben Engel’s new play, “Havdalah”, which addresses similar subject matter in dramatic form.

*This is an in-person program that will also be streamed for those who aren’t able to attend in person. A list of suggested reading materials for deeper study will be provided with your registration link.
