The Jewish Community of Ukraine and the Current Crisis with Dr. David E. Fishman
Thu, March 10, 2022 at 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
David E. Fishman is a Professor of History at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. He directs the Jewish Archival Survey in Ukraine, and has spent extensive time teaching and conducting research in Kyiv and L’viv.
There are between 50,000 to 100,000 Jews in Ukraine today. It is an active and extremely diverse community – with five rival Jewish umbrella organizations, two rival chief rabbis (both Hasidic), a smattering of Conservative and Reform congregations, and an impressive network of JCC’s. The country’s president and defense minister are Jewish, as are some of its top businessmen/oligarchs. Now Ukrainian Jewry is thrust into a crisis, due to the Russian invasion of their country. This talk will analyze the state of the community, and its reactions to unfolding events.
This program will take place IN-PERSON and on Zoom. If you are attending in-person, please bring proof of vaccination to enter the building.
