The Architecture of Gender: Women in the Eastern European Synagogue. @ webinar

The Architecture of Gender: Women in the Eastern European Synagogue. @ webinar

Second in a series of illustration Zoom lectures on the architecture and history of synagogues in Eastern Europe, presented by Vladimir Levin, director of the Center for Jewish Art, called Beyond Religion: the History and Architecture of Synagogues in Eastern Europe.

The lecture will discuss the place that women occupied in the synagogue in eastern Europe and the profound changes in their position that took place in the 18th century and in the late 19th century.

The series of three lectures is devoted to the history and architecture of synagogues in eastern Europe, from the 16th and 17th centuries until the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. The talks deal with the synagogue as both an architectural space and a public place, discussing features and functions which are far beyond the narrow realm of religion. 

The lectures are a program presented by BEIT AVI CHAIa Jewish cultural hub in Jerusalem dedicated to the creation, development and expression of Jewish thought and ideas.
