Oct 17 – To Be a Jew in the Twenty-First Century

The first in a 3 part series of programs on anti-Semitism.

Join us on October 17 at 7:30pm

Dr Martin (Marty) Shichtman, the Director of Jewish Studies and Professor of English Language and Literature at Eastern Michigan University will be presenting-
To Be a Jew in the Twenty-First Century.

Marty says “I borrow the title of Muriel Rukeyser’s 1944 poem, “To Be a Jew in the Twentieth Century,” because recent events again require us to think about what it means to be Jewish, to be Americans— and can we ever really be Jewish-Americans?”

Dr. Shichtman has been a fellow at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and at Brandeis University’s Schusterman Institute for Israel Studies. Shichtman has been the recipient of grants from the Covenant Foundation, the Academic Engagement Network, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor. He has directed five summer seminars for school-teachers at the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus in Farmington Hills.
