This three session mini-course offers “students” a taste of a full Me'ah Select course that Jacob Meskin has been offering around the Boston area and plans to offer at Kerem Shalom in the coming year. Each week we will explore short stories by Jewish writers which evoke the different ways in which Jews living in Russia, Europe, Canada, and America have lived out the many complexities of being a Jew in the late nineteenth through the twenty-first centuries. These moving stories focus especially on issues of memory, identity, gender, relationships (both romantic and familial), and the role of Jewish religious tradition in the modern world.
3 sessions: Tuesdays - May 7, 14, and 21 10:30am-12:30pm
$75/Kerem Shalom members; $100/non-KS members
