JewDub Talks is now in its third year of offering an academic Jewish twist on the popular TED Talks format. On January 29th, 2015, four outstanding speakers offered pocket-sized lectures on Jewish history, religion, and the arts. A dominant theme connecting the talks was the changing shape of the Jewish community, which prompted each speaker to consider questions of boundaries and who is an “insider” and an “outsider” in contemporary Jewish life.
To sample talks from previous years, like Barbara Henry’s “So Why Yiddish?” (now with over 16,000 views!), you can visit the Stroum Center’s YouTube channel.
