MANDELBAUM FAMILY LECTURE SERIES: The Irish-Jewish Couple in American Feature Films
The Mandelbaum Family Lecture Series ushers in the new year with an exciting lecture from respected film educator and historian, Dr. Lawrence Baron.

From Abie’s Irish Rose to Keeping the Faith, Irish-Jewish love stories have been a common theme in American movies. This talk examines how these romances have conveyed varying messages from extolling the “Melting Pot” ideal, exposing inter-ethnic tensions, epitomizing interfaith toleration, and embracing multicultural diversity. It will be illustrated with clips from silent and more recent films.
