Deborah Dash Moore is Frederick G. L. Huetwell Professor of History at the University of Michigan and Director of the Jean and Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies.

This lecture reveals the importance of gender in interpreting the modern Jewish past. It highlights the profound influence of feminist scholarship by considering the impact of gender on Jewish religious practices and political behavior, educational accomplishments and communal structures, patterns of acculturation, and choice of occupations. The lecture aims to stimulate conversations on Jewish women's creativity and spirituality, as well as exploring such difficult issues as violence against women and Jews' reactions to persecution in the Holocaust.

This program is sponsored by Gary and Bernice Lebbin in honor of their family.
