In this special event, authors from a recent themed issue of Journal of Jewish Education will discuss their articles on race, ethnicity, and immigration in Jewish education. The issue spotlights the experiences of underrepresented individuals and serves as compelling testimony to the diverse array of Jewish experiences and identities, challenging prevailing norms about how Jewish educational spaces are designed and who benefits from them. This webinar will include the following authors speaking about their papers:

Hannah Kober ‘16 (Stanford University): A Fraying Connection: Israeli-American Perspectives on Diasporic Hebrew Learning Through and Beyond Jewish Education

Marva Shalev Marom (The Schechter Institutes): Eat, Pray, Wait: The Informal Israeli Jewish Education of Ethiopian Youth Awaiting Aliyah

Elana Riback Rand (Yeshiva University): “Realizing I’m Sephardi”: Navigating Prayer and Curricular Discontinuities in Majority-Ashkenazic Day Schools

Ariela Ronay-Jinich (Olamim): Latin Jewish Families and Their Educational Choices: Navigating Multiple Identities

The event will be moderated by Ilana Horwitz (Tulane University).

Co-sponsored by the Mandel Center for Studies in Jewish Education at Brandeis University, the Grant Center for the American Jewish Experience at Tulane University, and the Journal of Jewish Education.

These events are free and open to the public. Registration is required. Videos and podcasts of past events can be found at https://www.brandeis.edu/mandel/events/videos.html.
