Cool Jewish Events: Race and Judaism Symposium

2009 Race and Judaism Symposium

Date: Thursday, November, 19, 2009

Time: 10:30am-5:30pm
Place: Philadelphia, PA/Temple University, Paley Library Lecture Hall, Ground Floor

The 2009 Race and Judaism Symposium at Temple University will be devoted to themes in memory of Dr. Gary Tobin, the President of the Institute for Jewish Research and Community, who died on July 6, 2009.

Tobin, with his wife Dianne, also founded Be’chol Lashon/In Every Tongue, a think–tank devoted to the study of Jewish diversity and bringing diverse communities of Jewish people together across the globe. In addition to Jewish diversity, Dr. Tobin’s work addressed methodological problems of Jewish demography; philanthropy; racism and anti-Semitism; and anti-Israelism on college campuses and in the media.
This symposium will bring together a group of scholars at Temple University culminating with a closing keynote by Rabbi Capers Funnye of the Beth Shalom B’nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation in Chicago, Illinois.
