The UMass Dartmouth Center for Jewish Culture and the Department of Portuguese present a lecture on “Jews in Brazil: From Immigration to Present Politics” by international journalist Shirley Nigri Farber.

Farber is publisher of Shalom Magazine and host/producer of the Bate Papo com Shirley TV show currently broadcasting in five New England states on Comcast on Demand. She will present the history of Jewish immigration since 1500 from various countries to Brazil, from the first synagogue of the Americas to antisemitism today. She will also discuss the varied sites where these early Brazilian Jews settled throughout the country, from the Amazon to Rio de Janeiro.

There will be a visual presentation and time for a Q&A. The snow date is Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 5 p.m.

For additional information, please contact Rabbi Jacqueline Romm Satlow at jsatlow@umassd.edu.

The event will take place at the UMASS-D Claire Carney Library. It is free, in English and open to the public. Please park in Lot 13.
