Hasidism: A New History

This lecture will present the major findings by a team of scholars about the history of Hasidism, from its origins in the mid-eighteenth century to the present day. This pietistic movement started in a remote corner of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, but, by the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it became a central actor on the stage of modern Jewish history. Despite predictions of its demise after the Holocaust, Hasidism today has around three-quarter of a million followers and continues to fascinate Jews and non-Jews alike. David Biale is the Emanuel Ringelblum Distinguished Professor of Jewish History at UC Davis.

The Nazi Holocaust & the Exile of Yiddish

The Holocaust and the new post-war order brought about a near-total end to the Yiddish culture that had sustained Eastern European Jewry for centuries. This talk, by Wake Forest University historian Barry Trachtenberg, examines the complicated history of Di algemeyne entsiklopedye (The General Encyclopedia, Berlin, Paris, New York: 1932-1966), which was one of the only successful efforts to bridge the pre- and post-Holocaust eras, and to link Yiddish speakers to one another after they were scattered to the far reaches of the globe. Initially conceived in the early 1930s as a tool to modernize the many millions of Yiddish readers, the encyclopedia became a means to work through the growing crises prompted by Nazism, the murder of European Jewry, and eventually, the effort to assist Yiddish-speaking Jews resettle into their new lives after the war.

JFS Senior Connections: Redefining Aging (and how positive thinking can help)

For many older adults, negative cultural stereotypes about aging influence how we think and feel about getting older. The impact of negative thinking often affects us emotionally and inhibits our true potential. There are certain realities about growing older we cannot change. However, there is much we can do to redefine what it means to be older and live productively.

Join Abby Palmer MSW, JFS Senior Services Social Worker to explore how ageism affects us as we grow old. We will focus on the benefits of redefining aging, being proactive and thinking positively.

Triangle Jewish Chorale Concert

In the Embrace of the Tango. Perhaps no dance form other than Salomé with her seven veils is as alluring and sensuous as the tango! Originating in lower-class neighborhoods of Buenos Aires and Montevideo at the turn of the 20th century, the tango was fruitfully influenced by an admixture of cultural traditions, including the violin technique of various Jewish new immigrants. The Triangle Jewish Chorale and the Lorena Guillen Tango Ensemble are proud to present a representative sampling of tango music, from classics of the repertoire by Jewish-Argentinian composers to tango songs created for the New York Yiddish theater and pre-WW2 European versions inspired by the recently exported Argentinian tango. 
A tango dance demonstration/lesson by Alicia and Eduardo is at 2:30 pm in the lobby, followed by the concert at 3:00 pm in the hall. Admission is free, donations accepted.

Maimonides Society: Physicians Connecting to Each Other Despite a Culture of Isolation (Rescheduled from December)

Maimonides Society: Physicians Connecting to Each Other Despite a Culture of Isolation (Rescheduled from December)

Description:  In this time of technologic dependence, productivity pressures and diminished personal contact physicians across the country seem more isolated from one another.  This mirrors what is happening more generally in our society and which appears to be particularly acute among healthcare providers. This seems to be a key factor for physicians, where stress, overwork and lack of balance in life may contribute to burnout, depression, substance abuse and possibly suicide.  The instilled physician culture spawns reluctance to talk about our doubts, mistakes and stresses with each other leaving us feeling very much alone.

How can we best provide connection and support for each other?

Please join us in this discussion facilitated by Chris Mauro, PhD.

Dessert & Coffee will be served.

Generously Hosted at the Home of Drs. Elizabeth & Michael Ross

(Address will be provided after we receive your registration.)



Fill out my online form.

The Maimonides Society is an affinity group of the Jewish Federation of Raleigh-Cary comprised of doctors, residents and medical students in Wake County.

Bio sketch:

Christian F. Mauro, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Mauro is the director of the American Psychological Association Accredited Pre-doctoral Clinical Psychology Internship Program at Duke and is the Director of the Psychosocial Treatment Clinic where he supervises and trains graduate students, psychology interns, and child psychiatry fellows on evidence based psychosocial treatments for children and adolescents. He received his doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Miami University (Ohio) and completed his internship at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Mauro has been a certified cognitive behavioral therapist (CBT) on a number of NIMH funded clinical trials and was the CBT Supervisor for The Child and Adolescent Anxiety Multimodal Treatment Study (CAMS) at Duke University.
