From Canaan to the Catskills: The Jewish Mother Through the Ages with Rabbi Jonathan Lubliner Learning with Rabbi Jonathan Lubliner


June 15, 2020    
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Type

Whether idealized for selfless sacrifice in Yiddish music and literature or lampooned for neuroses by Borscht Belt comedians, the Jewish mother has taken on a near mythic character. Join Rabbi Lubliner on four Monday evenings in June for a journey of 3,500 years, as we explore the story of the Jewish mother from the Bible to Philip Roth and the Talmud to the Jazz Singer.
