This week, our friends at the Robert F. Byrnes Russian and East European Institute are holding a Teach-In on the War in Ukraine. The full schedule is available at https://blogs.iu.edu/hamiltonlugar/2022/02/28/iu-hamilton-lugar-school-to-host-a-teach-in-on-russias-attack-on-ukraine/ . Professor Dina Spechler (Political Science and Jewish Studies) will be teaching today at 3-4 PM on Why Did Russia Invade, and Why Now? in GISB 1067.
In this program, Marti and Schleifer introduce the dichotomy between the two different - but still connected – worlds that would constitute the musical world of the many Jewish musicians and dance-masters who lived in late Medieval Italy. Alongside the elaborate polyphonic music and flashy dances they would play, sing, dance and teach, they would also have a parallel musical world – that of the synagogue and its special music. https://events.iu.edu/borns-jewish/event/461702-1

Join your fellow Jewish Studies alumni on this special IU Day of Giving
Help us achieve our Jewish Studies alumni giving goal for this IU Day!
The Borns Jewish Studies Program has been blessed to have donors who have given generously to the program. Without their generosity, we would not have been able to provide the level of scholarships and support that we have. But out-of-state tuition now exceeds $51,000 annually, and we can no longer award enough funding; many high school seniors who want to be IU Jewish Studies majors can no longer afford to study with us.
Now, JSP alumni, it’s your turn to ensure that Jewish Studies at Indiana University continues to lead the way as a premier Jewish Studies program. Show your appreciation for your IU Jewish Studies education. Please give back. Guarantee that the program can continue to educate and nurture future generations of leaders for Jewish communities and beyond.

BJSP adjunct Professor Halina Goldberg discusses the contribution of Polish Jews to the field of music.
🎶 🎻 W powszechnym mniemaniu na temat tworzenia muzyki przez Żydów na ziemiach polskich, żydowskie i nieżydowskie przestrzenie muzyczne były od siebie oddzielone, a każda z grup była powiązana z różnymi pejzażami dźwiękowymi. Jednakże archiwalia ukazują, że istniało wiele możliwości kooperacji między nimi.
👉14 marca o godz. 20.00 zapraszamy na wykład #online Shared Soundscapes: The Legacy of Polish Jews in Music prof. Haliny Goldberg, która opowie o muzycznym dziedzictwie Żydów polskich, przez pryzmat okoliczności, które umożliwiały żydowskim i chrześcijańskim muzykom wspólne tworzenie – uczenie się od siebie, dzielenie się repertuarem i językami muzycznymi.
🎶W trakcie wykładu będą prezentowane fragmenty nowoodkrytych utworów muzycznych stworzonych przez Żydów polskich.
