Hanukkah & the Jewish Experience at UVA

As the University of Virginia prepares to “Light the Lawn” and the Jewish community kindles its Hanukkah lights, join Lifetime Learning and a panel of UVA Jewish leaders to discuss Hanukkah, UVA’s Jewish Studies department, and Jewish life at the university today.

The panel consists of the University of Virginia’s James Loeffler, the Jay Berkovitz Professor of Jewish History and the Ida and Nathan Kolodiz Director of the Jewish Studies Program; Rabbi Vanessa Ochs, Professor of Religious Studies and Jewish Studies; and Rabbi Jake Rubin, (Col ’02) Executive Director of the Brody Jewish Center (Hillel).
