Featured Speaker Hershel Greenblat 

Born in the caves of Ukraine, Hershel Greenblat survived the Holocaust because of the resourcefulness and determination of his parents in evading the Nazis. As he states, “It is because of my parents’ unwavering will that we were able to survive the horrors of the Holocaust.” When the family settled in Atlanta, Hershel learned how to become an American as well as an active member of his southern community. Come hear his message.

Jointly sponsored by Eternal Life – Hemshech, the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, and the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum.

    THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Film and Discussion

    The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Watch the film and then join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
