Congregation Bet Ha’am is excited to welcome Professor Marc Dollinger, author of Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing the Alliance In the 1960s for two Zoom lectures in October. We hope the community will join us for either or both of the talks.

1619, 1654, 2020: Jews and Racism
October 29th at 7:00 PM
We will explore the documents in a primary source reader that Dr. Dollinger co-edited with Gary Zola get to the heart of American Jewish support, complicity, and benefit from institutional racism. This talk will be a deep dive into the ways that Jews, as whites, have succeeded in the U.S. because of institutional racism. This is talk for people who want the most direct and honest assessment of the current national climate.

Bio: Dr. Marc Dollinger holds the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Endowed Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University. He has served as research fellow at Princeton University’s Center for the Study of Religion as well as the Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow and Lecturer in the Humanities at Bryn Mawr College, where he coordinated the program in Jewish Studies. Professor Dollinger is author of four scholarly books in American Jewish history. His next project traces his own experience fighting campus anti-Semitism at both right-wing and left-wing universities.
