   Apr 27, 2021 (2:00pm - 3:00pm)  JewishGen Presentation: "Portuguese Jews: Names & History”
The case of the so-called "Portuguese" Jews (Western Sephardim) is exceptional in the Jewish history: a mass conversion to Christianity at the end of the 15th century and a gradual return to the religion of their ancestors generations later. The debate about the reasons of this return and the degree of "Jewishness" of members of these communities (primarily in such cities as Amsterdam, London, Hamburg, Livorno, Venice, Bordeaux, and Bayonne) never ceased. Considerations of certain authors are passionate and more closely related to ideological rather than scientific factors. The analysis of names used in these communities allows to shed some (ideologically neutral) light on these complex and fascinating pages of the Jewish history.

   Dec 22, 2021 (12:00pm)  Leo Baeck Institute Panel Discussion: Perspectives on Jewish Life in Germany Today
The postwar period has seen dramatic transformations in Jewish life in Germany, most notably the influx of at least 200,000 people with Jewish backgrounds from the former Soviet Union after 1990. Since then, the presence of a significant and growing Jewish population, new synagogues and rabbinical seminaries, and a burgeoning Jewish cultural sphere seemed to suggest that the “new” Germany had finally overcome its past. But how are Jewish people defining their own place within German society, within a Jewish sphere that is much more diverse than the rest of Germany recognizes, and within German and Jewish history and memory?
