Gail Rosenthal

VENTNOR – Stockton University faculty and staff members will explore topics such as Jews in film, women and Jewish law and South Jersey survivors of the Holocaust in an ongoing lecture series hosted by Shirat Hayam Synagogue, 700 N. Swarthmore Ave.

All lectures are free, open to the public, and begin at 7:30 p.m. Question-and-answer sessions will follow.

The series’ schedule is as follows:

Jan. 21 – Gail Rosenthal, director of the Sara & Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton, will present the “Holocaust Survivors of South Jersey Project,” which features the life stories of Holocaust survivors in our local communities.

March 11 – Steven Marcus, adjunct instructor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies, will discuss “Jews in Film.” He will examine the contributions of Jews to American film, a topic he explores in greater detail during his semester-long class at Stockton.

April 15 – Marcia Fiedler, assistant professor of Jewish Studies at Stockton, will speak on Women and Jewish Law.

This is the 25th year Stockton and Shirat Hayam have partnered to bring educational lectures to the community. A brief Havdalah service, which separates the Jewish sabbath from the rest of the week, will follow each lecture.

RSVP required. Please contact Cathleen Kunkle at 609-822-7116 or
