Jonathan Z. S. Pollack, PhD, describes the daily lives, contributions, and challenges of Jewish students, faculty, staff, and alumni at UW–Madison in this engaging lecture based on his recent book, Wisconsin, The New Home of the Jew: 150 Years of Jewish Life at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Hear how amid periods of acceptance and embrace, discrimination and exclusion, Jews with a stake in the university invested in their community and left a lasting imprint on UW and beyond.

Jonathan Z. S. Pollack is an instructor in history at Madison Area Technical College and an honorary fellow of the UW Institute for Research in the Humanities.
