Reed on forgotten Jewish History

LECTURE SERIES AT BERKELEY: Series on forgotten Jewish history coming to Magnes (The Jewish News of Northern California)
How texts can be lost, found, mistranslated, abandoned and put aside — thus changing the course of history — is a topic professor Annette Yoshiko Reed will tackle at the upcoming 2018 Taubman Lectures at the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life in Berkeley.

The program is titled “Forgetting: The Jewish Past between Rupture and Renewal,” and the three lectures are slated to take place in a four-night period starting Monday, March 12.

This history has been forgotten by some, but not by PaleoJudaica readers. This sounds like an excellent series and if you are in the Berkeley area, be sure to attend.
