We will use our six sessions to explore what we can learn about the experiences of modern Jews by reading unusually compelling short stories. The authors are outstanding Jewish writers living in America, Canada, England, the old Austro-Hungarian Empire and Poland, whose stories were published from roughly the 1950s right up until today.

These moving stories focus especially on issues of memory, identity, gender, relationships (both romantic and familial) and the role of Jewish religious tradition in the modern world.

Our authors will include: Cynthia Ozick, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Franz Kafka, Nessa Rappaport, Sholem Asch, Naomi Alderman, Lynn Sharon Schwartz, Bernard Malamud, Ayelet Tsabari, Nathan Englander, Philip Roth, Dara Horn and Blume Lempel.

This course runs weekly through April 7.

Free for temple members.
