COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE
Amherst, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Join us for a day of events. Featuring the Melinda Rosenblatt Lecture presented by Steven Zipperstein All events are free and open to the public. Schedule 2 p.m. |  The 2017 Melinda Rosenblatt Lecture presented by Steven Zipperstein: "Pogrom: Kishinev and the Tilt of History" The Kishinev pogrom of 1903 was the first event in Russian Jewish life to receive international attention. The riot in the obscure border town, which left forty-nine dead, dominated headlines in the western press for weeks, and in the Yiddish press in the United States for months. It intruded on Russian-U.S. relations; had a lasting influence on an astonishing array of institutions, from the Israeli army to the NAACP; and was the likely inspiration for the first version of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This event does no require an RSVP.
