The Jewish communities of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Eastern Europe featured a dazzling and provocative array of ideological, religious and political movements: Zionism, Diaspora nationalism, Yiddishism, Orthodoxy, socialism, and more. Moreover, many individuals moved fluidly—or painstakingly—between different ideological commitments over the course of their lives.

Come hear Professors Joshua Karlip (author of Tragedy of a Generation: The Rise and Fall of Diaspora Nationalism in Eastern Europe) and Jess Olson (author of Nathan Birnbaum and Jewish Modernity: Architect of Zionism, Yiddishism, and Orthodoxy) discuss their books and the complexities of the modern European Jewish experience—complexities which still reverberate today—with Professor Kenneth Moss of Johns Hopkins University.
