The Coming of Age of a Post-Holocaust Community, Research Seminar with Dr Melanie Landau, Tuesday 5 March, 12-1 pm

Dr. Melanie Landau speaking on:

The Future Is Bright! The Coming of Age of a Post-Holocaust Community

This seminar will describe a research project in progress that complements the Jewish Continuity report of the Gen 08 Jewish Community Study. The research materials for this project are the transcripts of focus groups recorded for the Continuity Report in 2010. These focus groups provide a nuanced, complicating and complementary angle to the Jewish Continuity report. The seminar will address educational and social components of Jewish day school education, the relationship between exogamy (inter-marrying) and Jewish identity, complexity in how Australian Jews relate to Israel, and gender and leadership in the community. Professor Andrew Markus will respond.

Dr. Melanie Landau is a researcher in the Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation. She is author of Tradition and Equality in Jewish Law: Beyond the Sanctification of Subordination (Continuum/Bloomsbury, 2012). She is also Executive Director of Or HaLev-Center for Jewish Spirituality and Meditation.
