“Synagogues without Jews: The Rediscovery, Restoration, and use of East German Jewish Sites"

Event Detail
Date: Thursday, February 28th
Time: 3:30 pm-5:00 pm
Description:

This workshop will be led by Rachel Cylus, program manager at the Jewish Museum of Maryland, about how people interact with historical religious sites. Are these sites (still) sacred? Are they still under the ownership of their religious community? What are the ethics behind religious tourism? What makes a historical site interesting - are we compelled only by exceptions, or also by the ordinary?

Additional Public Info: Open to faculty, staff and community members.
