We will have several opportunities to learn from Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, CEO of the Jewish Women’s Archive, over the weekend:

  • Women, History, and Memory: Celebrating and Reconsidering “Firsts”
    Friday, December 2
    , 6:15 PM, Sanctuary and Livestream

    This year has marked some significant anniversaries in American Jewish life: 100 years since the first bat mitzvah and 50 years since the ordination of the first woman rabbi. Hear a d'var Torah during the Erev Shabbat Service from Dr. Judith Rosenbaum as she provides a reflection on what we can learn from anniversaries, and how a reconsideration of “firsts” might expand our understanding of history, memory and social change.

  • Oneg Shabbat With Dr. Rosenbaum
    Friday, December 2, 7:15 PM, Social Hall

    We will have an opportunity to converse with Dr. Rosenbaum immediately following the Friday evening Shabbat service during an oneg Shabbat*, including a Q&A session.
  • Jews and Intersectionality: What We Must Learn, What We Can Teach
    Saturday, December 3, 4:00 PM, Sanctuary and Livestream

    “Intersectionality” is a buzzword these days, but what does it really mean, and what does it mean for Jews? In this session, we’ll explore the uses of intersectionality in theory and practice, what it challenges us to learn, and how Jewish identity can offer insights to the conversation. This dialogue with Dr. Rosenbaum will conclude with Havdalah.

Dr. Rosenbaum is CEO of the Jewish Women’s Archive, a pioneering digital archive that documents Jewish women’s stories, elevates their voices and inspires them to be agents of change. An educator, historian and writer, Dr. Rosenbaum earned a PhD in American Studies from Brown University, with a focus on women, gender and social movements. A former Fulbright Fellow, she teaches and lectures widely on Jewish studies and women’s studies and publishes in both academic and popular journals and anthologies. She serves on the faculty of the Bronfman Fellowship and is a Schusterman Senior Fellow. Judith lives with her family in the Boston area.

Beth Am's scholar-in-residence weekend is made possible by the Saxe Family Scholar-in-Residence Endowment Fund. *Oneg Shabbat is sponsored by the Liebhaber Fund.
