Rep for the Jews on Campus

a note from Tammi Benjamin:
Dear Hebrew students, past and present:
I wanted to remind you about the following opportunity to perform
in an "Evening of International Music and Dance" on March 8th. If you
would like to sing, dance, play an instrument or recite poetry in
Hebrew for this event, there will be auditions this Wed. January 25,
5pm - 6:30pm in the Cowell Fireside Lounge. I hope you will consider
it -- it should be lots of fun!


from the Jewish Studies Department:
We are pleased to invite you to a "Lunch and Learn" with Brian Catlos. His talk, entitled, "Jews of Muslim and Christian Spain in a Humanistic Perspective: Three Episodes," will be held this coming Wednesday, January 25 at 12:00 pm in the Silverman Conference Room at Stevenson College. In his talk Catlos will be discussing three episodes in the Jewish history of medieval Spain: the Granada pogrom of 1066, the Barcelona Disputation of 1263 and the Expulsion of 1492, each of which is analyzed in the broad contexts of developments in the Jewish, Muslim and Christian worlds.

I think everyone should try to make it to the Catlos presentation. I heard that he has done some marvelous research in the area of pre-16th century Sephardic Jewry, which is a topic in need of much more discussion on this campus. It seems to me that Sephardic Jews are rarely, if at all, included in most history classes (as opposed to Ashkenazi Jews) so this should be a very informative discussion.
