“A Rich Brew: How Cafés Create Modern Jewish Culture”
Shachar Pinsker argues that coffeehouses anchored a silk road of modern Jewish culture. His lecture will uncover a network of interconnected cafe’s that were central to the modern Jewish experience in a time of migration and urbanization — in Odessa, Warsaw, Vienna, Berlin, New York city and Tel Aviv. Drawing on stories, novels, poems, newspaper articles, memoirs, archival documents, photographs, caricatures and artwork, Pinsker will show how Jewish modernity was born in the café, nourished and sent out into the world by way of politics, literature, art and theatre.
Dr. Pinsker will offer a book signing session of his newest book.
