HBI founding director Shulamit Reinharz returns to HBI with co-editor Barbara Vinick for a conversation with HBI director Lisa Fishbayn Joffe about their powerful first-person collection, “100 Jewish Brides: Stories from Around the World.” The collection features stories of Jewish brides from six continents and highlights diverse rituals related to weddings then and now.

Shulamit Reinharz is the Brandeis University Jacob Potofsky Professor of Sociology, Emerita, the founding director of the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, and the founding director of the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute/HBI.

Barbara Vinick, former Associate Professor at the School of Public Health of Boston University, is secretary of Kulanu, an organization that supports isolated and emerging Jewish communities around the world.

“100 Jewish Brides” is the third collection inspired by Reinharz’s vision of Judaism as practiced by women worldwide. As a past HBI Research Associate, Vinick collected and edited stories for “Esther’s Legacy: Celebrating Purim Around the World.” Vinick and Reinharz followed this with the award-winning and co-edited anthology “Today I Am a Woman: Stories of Bat Mitzvah Around the World.”

“100 Jewish Brides: Stories from Around the World” will be available Feb. 6 at Amazon, Bookshop, and your local bookseller.

This is a hybrid program.
