    • Session 1: Sickness, Disease, and Disability in Biblical Texts
      with Dr. Jason Gaines

      The ancient Jewish understanding of physical and mental ailments is very different from our own. In this session, we will examine important legal and narrative texts in the Torah and beyond that trace our people’s changing understanding of illness through the millennia. Do afflictions come from God, or are they part of the vicissitudes of life? What did healing and medicine look like in the time of Moses or King David? Why does God countenance pain and suffering in the world? We will examine these questions and more while reading our sacred texts as works of history and literature.

      Dr. Jason Gaines is the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Dept. of Jewish Studies at Tulane University, where he teaches Hebrew Bible and Early Judaism.

    • Session 2: American Jewish Responses to Challenge and Crisis
      with Dr. Michael Cohen

      Wednesday, July 15 – 7pm

      As Jews confronted their American environment, they were faced with the challenge of both maintaining their sense of Jewish identity and fitting into their American surroundings.  The primary goal of this session will be to understand how Jewish women and men navigated this challenge in times of crisis, and to place the history of American Jews within our contemporary context.

      Dr. Michael Cohen is a Professor and Chair of Jewish Studies at Tulane University, where he holds a Sizeler Professorship.

    • Session 3: In Quarantine with Anne Frank
      with Dr. Naomi Yavneh Klos

      Wednesday, July 22 – 7:00pm

      Throughout the current pandemic, the name Anne Frank has been repeatedly invoked, whether as a Facebook meme or as a stern warning never to forget the unique horror of the Holocaust.  But although Anne Frank is an iconic figure for Jews and non-Jews alike, most of us do not know the nuances of her story or its context in the Dutch experience of World War II. What, for example, did it mean to go into hiding (or, in Dutch, onderduiken, to “dive under”)? We also may not be aware that the “diary” we read is, in fact, a combination of  Anne’s daily diary and her own (incomplete) revision, which she hoped to publish after the war. Join us to consider how the story of an eloquent young girl, living in unimaginable circumstances, can help us to greater empathy and compassion in our own time of uncertainty.

      Dr. Naomi Yavneh Klos is a Professor of Languages and Cultures and the former director of the University Honors Program at Loyola University.  In spring 2020, Naomi was a Fulbright Scholar at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands.

    • Session 4: Tisha B’Av and the Power of Lament
      with Touro Clergy

      Wednesday, July 29 – 7:00pm

      Every year, the 9th of Av is a day of collective mourning and fasting across the Jewish world. In observance of this holy day, we recall the expulsions, disasters, and exiles of our people throughout history and read the Book of Lamentations as a way to channel our grief. This year, we dedicate our study and prayers to all those in our Jewish and general community who have suffered trauma or lost their lives during this Pandemic.  We will share names and stories and dwell in our sadness for all that has been lost, knowing that collective mourning is an important part of healing.
