The launch event of the Brandeis Initiative on the Jews of the Americas (JOTA) will gather extraordinary Latin American trailblazers in conversation in order to promote new ways of thinking about global Jewish peoplehood, immigrant and diaspora life, and the larger lessons that can be learned by the Jewish experience when understood as part of the Americas writ large.

Our speakers include leading figures in fields of journalism, literature, art, architecture, human rights, entrepreneurship, the museum world, communal organizations, and political figures, and they represent a host of countries, including Mexico, Argentina, Panama, Venezuela and Chile.

The launch event celebrates the establishment of JOTA as a unique initiative, understood as a bridge between the academy and the community. By knowing our pasts, elevating our stories, and creating opportunities for dialogue, we recognize the richness of our heritage and provide tools with which to combat antisemitism. We aim to be a convener of study and collaboration, where Latin American Jewish history and its present iterations are known and valued and where creative academic and community enterprises are nurtured.
