FOLKLORE WITH PROFESSOR GILIT HASAN-ROKEM
Wednesday evening, May 10
On the surface, folklore and proverbs may seem simple, quaint, or platitudinous. But beneath that they express the conflicts and subversiveness that society is otherwise afraid to deal with. That is why folklore is so important in appreciating what is vital and defining in Jewish culture.
We have the special privilege of an evening with Galit Hasan-Rokem. She grew up as a Finnish Jew in Helsinki and became a professor of Folklore at Hebrew University. She is an international leader in collecting folktales and analyzing their significance. In addition, she is a feminist poet and an activist for a two state solution.
We are planning an evening of dialogue
at the home of Howard and Susan Reese.
