Marie Syrkin: Values Beyond the Self

Hosted By: Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI)

Marie Syrkin’s life spanned ninety years of the twentieth century, 1899–1989. As a polemical journalist, socialist Zionist, poet, educator, literary critic, translator, and idiosyncratic feminist, she was eyewitness to and reporter on most of the major events in America, Israel, and Europe. During her lifetime Syrkin’s name was widely recognized in the world of Jewish life and letters. Yet, inevitably, since her death, recognition of her name is no longer quite so immediate. Carole S. Kessner’s intention is to restore for a new generation the singular legacy of Syrkin’s life.

Learn more about Syrkin from her biographer and former student, professor emerita Carole Kessner, and her cousin Peter Osnos, acclaimed publisher and former Washington Post reporter.
