The Penultimate and Peculiar Connection Between the Nordic and Jewish Cultures

w/ Nordic Museum volunteer Phyllis Rosen

8:45am

Nordic Museum volunteer Phyllis Rosen will present a lecture at the the Seattle Limmud Festival on January 20, 2019, sharing her own research. Speaking to the similarities of the Scandinavian and Jewish Cultures, guests will explore through visuals and hands-on artifacts the history, art, culinary, and cultural traditions of both cultures. The lecture will touch on the empathic support Scandinavian countries provided during the Holocaust, which Rosen attributes to the similarities of culture, and perhaps even how peoples in these two cultures have lived in the diaspora: Wandering Vikings? Wandering Jews? 

This event takes place at the Bellevue College. More information can be found on their webiste: http://www.limmudseattle.org.

Limmud "festivals" bring together Jews from a wide range of backgrounds, affiliations and geographic locations to create a unique learning experience.

While structured much like a typical conference with a schedule of sessions for participants, Limmud is also radically different in its approach to who leads sessions, what topics to include, and the approaches taken.

We are inspired by the Limmud value: "Everyone should be a learner and anyone can be a teacher."
