The Joy of Being Jewish: A Panel Discussion

July 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Celebrate the Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial with the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, Cincinnati Museum Center, and Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library by exploring the joy of being Jewish. As part of Cincinnati Museum Center’s Jewish Cincinnati Bicentennial Theme Day, join us for this in-person panel discussion on July 17, at 10 a.m. in Reakirt Auditorium at Union Terminal. We will explore personal journeys through the lens of Judaism – what it has meant to you, how it has served you in your life and community and what has inspired you to continue to practice. Tour Cincinnati Museum Center’s Our Shared Story Exhibit and the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center’s museum after the event.

We are joined by panelists including:

    • Sarah L. Weiss, Chief Executive Officer of the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center
    • Katie Goodman
    • Kayla Soroka
    • Rabbi David Burstein
2021 marks the 200th anniversary of Jewish community life in the city of Cincinnati, which formally began with the founding of Chestnut Street Cemetery. The Jewish community and the City of Cincinnati will commemorate this significant milestone through community celebrations, multi-generational programs and interactive experiences.
This milestone provides an opportunity for both celebration and reflection, and presents a compelling opportunity for the community to come together as one. Cincinnati’s Jewish community can boast myriad achievements, not least of which is the role the community has played in the history and development of greater Cincinnati. Both the Jewish community and the city overall have an opportunity to commemorate this historic milestone in our shared history, and to dream about what comes next.
