She is an expert on Jewish life in Eastern Europe and the Hasidic movement.
All the lectures in the video series are part of the International Institute of Secular Humanistic Judaism's Colloquium in 1997. Even if you missed the earlier classes you can still attend this one. Admission is free and no texts are required. Each session consists of an exciting video lecture by a prominent Judaic scholar from a major university followed by a question-and-answer period.
