2021 Saxe Family Scholar-In-Residence Weekend

Beth Am welcomes Dr. Lila Corwin Berman as our 2021 Saxe Family Scholar-in-Residence

We will have several opportunities to learn from Dr. Corwin Berman over the weekend as she focuses on aspects of our congregation’s Racial Equity and Justice work and contextualizes these efforts within American Jewish history:

Dr. Lila Corwin Berman is Professor of History at Temple University. She holds the Murray Friedman Chair of American Jewish History and directs the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History. Berman received her B.A. from Amherst College and her Ph.D. from Yale. She is currently writing a book titled The American Jewish Philanthropic Complex: The Historical Formation of a Multi-Billion Dollar Institution (under contract with Princeton University Press). She is author of Metropolitan Jews: Politics, Race, and Religion in Postwar Detroit (University of Chicago, 2015), for which she received support from the National Endowment of the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies, and Speaking of Jews: Rabbis, Intellectuals, and the Creation of an American Public Identity (California, 2009), a finalist for the Jewish Book Council’s Sami Rohr Prize. Her articles have appeared in several publications, including the American Historical Review, Journal of American History and Jewish Social Studies, as well as many edited volumes.

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