Bildner Center to Hold Virtual Public Mini-Course on Jewish Farming

The Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life at Rutgers University will be offering a new two-part mini course on Jewish farming on February 16 and 23, from 7 to 8 p.m.

Expanding on Rutgers’ new digital exhibit “Jewish Agriculturalism in the Garden State,” Professor Jonathan Dekel-Chen, a visiting scholar at Rutgers-New Brunswick, will offer this course virtually, delving into the Jewish global agricultural settlement movement from the 1880s until the 1950s as well as some of its more recent developments in the United States and Israel.

Free and open to the public, the mini course and digital exhibit are sponsored by the Bildner Center. Advance registration is required at BildnerCenter.Rutgers.edu.

The online exhibit “Jewish Agriculturalism in the Garden State” can be accessed at BildnerCenter.Rutgers.edu and the public is invited to submit their own family photographs of life cycle events, schools, farms and everyday life that help tell the story of Jewish farming communities in New Jersey. Materials must be submitted through the Bildner Center’s website by January 31 in order to be considered for inclusion.
