The UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies invites you to the
lecture "Means of Remembering and Commemoration in Medieval Jewish
Communities: The Role of Liturgical Poetry and the Commentaries on It"
by Simha Goldin on Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at 4:00 pm in Royce 314.
Various disciplines-history, sociology, anthropology, and folklore
studies-have attempted to understand the process of remembrance and
memorializing, and how it is set in motion and takes shape during its
initial phase. Dr. Goldin (Jewish History, Tel Aviv University) will
examine this process with the help of Jewish sources. He will show how
liturgical poems written in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries in
Germany and northern France played an important role in preserving
collective memories and transmitting messages within the Jewish
community, and in its active opposition to Christianity. This lecture is
cosponsored by CMRS and the UCLA Center for Jewish Studies.
