Learn about a momentous period in Jewish women’s history (1750 – 1880), a time “in which every aspect of Jewish life underwent the most profound changes to have occurred since antiquity.”  Representing a tumultuous era of changing borders, demographic shifts, and significant Jewish migration, this discussion will explore how Jewish women responded to the challenges with a range of responses to modernization, from welcoming to resistant. By defining Jewish cultural production inclusively, Carlebach illuminates heretofore neglected voices and Jewish choices.

This lecture is part of the Highlights from the Posen Library Lecture Series.
