Shalom Uganda: Author Talk with Janice Masur

Wednesday, January 27, 2021 | 10:00 - 11:00 am
Virtual

In Shalom Uganda: A Jewish Community on the Equator, Janice Masur tells her story of living in the little-known Ashkenazi Jewish community of Kampala, Uganda from 1949 to 1961, under British Imperial rule with no rabbi or Jewish infrastructure. In this book, Masur documents, remembers, and preserves with interviews, photos and research her Kampala European Jewry with all the respect that it deserves. Janice Masur joins us in conversation about her incredible life story, the community that formed her, and the book where she documents it all.

Co-sponsored by Lawrence Family JCC Senior Department and JLearn.

Shalom Uganda: Author Talk with Janice Masur


A Different Look at Jewish and Christian Relations
MANDELBAUM FAMILY LECTURE SERIES

Virtual

This lecture focuses on the little known story of goodwill and cooperation that has existed between Jews and Christians throughout history. The tragic chronicle of events marking those relations is very familiar—for good reasons. But there is another tale to be told about instances of mutual support and concern that is fascinating, surprising, and inspiring. Join us for the continuation of our Mandelbaum Family Lecture Series with this engaging talk led by Rebecca Moore, Emerita Professor of Religion Studies at San Diego State University.
