Looted Art – Hungarian Jewish Art Collection

Before the Holocaust, about 70–80 percent of the major art collectors were of Jewish origin. Even though many of them were friends of Horthy and were known for their contribution to Hungarian cultural life, their art collections were confiscated and looted in 1944, and the collectors ended up at forced labor camps and concentration camps just like their less wealthy compatriots. What happened to the collections during World War II and where are the objects today? Come and listen to extraordinary family stories embedded in Hungarian history.

A rabbinic Love Affair

Explore the story of the tragic love affair between two charismatic men, Rabbi Jochanan and the bandit-turned-rabbi, Resh Lakish. This story, from the Babylonian Talmud, is full of powerful and erotic symbolism and sheds a fascinating light upon the clash between rabbinic life and Greco-Roman culture in third century Palestine. Although we will refer to the Hebrew we will study the story mainly in English, so Hebrew not required.
