Center schedules culture lectures

CARLSBAD — The San Diego Center for Jewish Culture’s Scholar Lectures on Jewish Studies continues in Carlsbad.
Professor Gershon Shafir, of UCSD, will lecture, on “The History of Israeli-Palestinian Relations” at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 in the Schulman Auditorium of the Carlsbad Dove Library, 1775 Dove Lane.
This lecture will survey the major stages in the relationship between the Zionist and Palestinian national movements from the end of the First World War to the present. It will focus on the range of proposed resolutions to the conflict — one state, two states — and the changing preferences among the contending parties over time.
Future lectures will feature professors speaking on numerous areas of research. Professor Sandy Lakoff of UCSD will speak in December on “Report from Iraq and Israel.” In January, Rabbi Scott Meltzer of SDSU will speak about “Messianic Parallels in Rabbinic Literature and the New Testament.” Other speakers include professors Joellyn Zollman, Risa Levitt Kohn and Alyssa Sepinwall.
The Scholar Lectures on Jewish Studies is a program of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture, co-sponsored by Jewish Federation of San Diego County and the Leichtag Family Foundation.
