Book Launch: German Jewry and the Allure of the Sephardic

Koret Professor of Jewish History at UC Berkeley, John Efron will read from his new book, German Jewry and the Allure of the Sephardic in conversation with Steven Zipperstein, the Daniel E. Koshland Professor in Jewish Culture and History at Stanford University. The book explores the special place accorded to medieval Sephardic Jewry in modern German-Jewish culture, with a special focus on highly romanticized perceptions of Sephardic aesthetics.
