Shabbat Morning Service with Dr. Alan Goldberg

April 27, 2024    
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
On the fifth day of Pesach, our Shabbat morning service will be led by Jim North and Rachel Friendly.  Our guest speaker is Alan Goldberg, Professor Emeritus at Syracuse University’s School of Education.
Until 2018, Dr. Goldberg was also the Director of a Certificate Program in Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Syracuse.

Dr. Goldberg’s topic will be “Holocaust and Humor.”  Recent sitcoms such as Curb Your Enthusiasm have used humor as a backdrop in portraying issues surrounding the Holocaust.  This program will look at examples of humor in Holocaust-related films and sitcoms and discuss their relevance for our contemporary understanding of the Holocaust.
