Ashkenazi and Sephardi Communities with Professor Kalman Weiser. For centuries, Ashkenazi and Sephardi have typically lived far apart, both geographically and culturally. Even now, for both groups, the other is still a stranger and entering a 'mixed marriage' requires learning a whole new set of customs, traditions, vocabulary, and history. The encounter between them raises fascinating questions not just about just who are Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews but about diversity within the Jewish people in general. Admission $10.
