The Charlotte Jewish News - March 2012 - Page 2 ^16th Annual Tate Lecture Features ^Professor Jonathan Boyarin Til n rrn 1 oh ta/H IJ-r'/~vThoo/~vr' onfTvi'/'viA/'vl/'vrrio'f fTita h/~v/~vh Thll/~vTT70 JEWISH FEDERATION NEWS Workshop on Healthy Relationships/Red I i i i i Distinguished Professor Jonathan Boyarin from UNC Chapel Hill will deliver the UNC Charlotte 16th annual Aliee Tate Leeture in Judaie Studies on Monday, Mareh 12. The leeture will be held at 7:30 PM in the Sam Lemer Center for Cultural Arts at Shalom Park. Boyarin will speak about his new book, Mornings at the Stanton Street Shut: A Summer on the Lower East Side. In his book, he shares the intimate life of the Stanton Street Shul, one of the last remaining Jewish eon- gregations on New York’s his- torie lower east side. This nar row building, wedged into a lot designed for an old-law tene ment, is full of elamorous voie- es—the generations of the dead, who somehow eontrive to make their presenee known, and the newer generation, keeping the building and its memories alive and making themselves Jews in the proeess. Through the eyes of Boyarin, at onee a member of the eongregation and a bemused anthropologist, the book follows this eongregation of “year-round Jews” through the eourse of a summer when its future must onee again be deeided. Boyarin is the Leonard and Tobee Kaplan Distinguished Professor of Modem Jewish Thought at UNC-Chapel Hill. An anthropologist and lawyer, he has served as visiting profes sor at Wesleyan University and Dartmouth College and eame to Carolina from the University of Kansas, where he was distin guished professor of Modern Jewish Studies. Boyarin reeeived a J.D. from Yale Law Sehool, after reeeiving his Ph.D. in Anthropology at the New Sehool for Soeial Researeh in New York. The leeture is free and open to the eommunity. Following the leeture, there will be a book signing and refreshments will be served. ^ This lecture is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte and the Alice Tate Shabbat Candle Lighting FOR March 2012 Friday, March 2, 6:02 PM Friday, March 9, 6:08 PM Friday, March 16, 7:14 PM Friday, March 23, 7:19 PM Friday, March 30, 7:25 PM The Charlotte Jewish News 5007 Providence Road, Suite 112 Chariotte, NC 28226 Phone (voice mail after office hours) Office 704-944-6765 FAX 704-365-4507 email: charlottejewishnews@shalomcharlotte.org An Affiliate of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte Amy Krakovitz - Editor Advertising Sales Reps: Jodi Valenstein, 704-609-0950 or Scott Moskowitz, 704-906-2474 Art Director, Erin Bronkar, 704-847-2185, ebronkar@carolina.rr.com CJN Editorial Board Chair - Bob Davis Members: Bob Abel, Evelyn Berger, David Delfiner, Jeff Epstein, Ann Langman, Linda Levy The CJN does not assume responsibility for the quality or kasruth of any product or service advertised.
