Join the ONLINE conversation with Todd Endelman, Zvi Gitelman, and Deborah Dash Moore to celebrate the publication of Crisis and Creativity between World Wars, 1918–1939 edited by Todd M. Endelman and Zvi Gitelman, Volume 8 of The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization. They will be introduced by Jeffrey Veidlinger, Director of the Frankel Center of Judaic Studies. This compilation of Jewish primary sources produced between the world wars examines what was simultaneously a tense and innovative period in modern Jewish history. During these decades, Jews vigorously fought over religion, politics, migration, and their relation to the state and to one another. Todd Endelman and Zvi Gitelman’s selections capture the variety, breadth, and depth of Jewish creativity and true courage in those tempestuous years. The texts, translated from many languages, span a wide range of politics, culture, literature, and art. Join Todd Endelman and Zvi Gitelman in a fascinating discussion of the volume and enjoy a sample of its riches.
