Roma, Jews, and the Representation of Motherhood
Hosted By: The City Congregation For Humanistic Judaism
Having migrated by multiple routes from Asia, Roma (“Gypsies”) lived on the margins of European society for centuries, an experience shared by many Jews. Even today, both groups still contend with high levels of prejudice. Yet both groups, separately and together, have woven their cultural contributions through the fabric of the continent’s history. Petra Gelbart will give an interactive presentation on various times and places where Jews and Roma have crossed paths, from genocide and social movements to music and marriage. You will hear live, accompanied songs as well as video clips, with a special focus on the representation of motherhood.
