Upcoming JCRC Events


Teaching & Scholarship on the Holocaust in the U.S.

Tuesday, September 10, 2019 @ 7:00pm

The Athenaeum

401 E. Michigan St., Indianapolis, IN 46204


The JCRC is partnering with the Leo Baeck Institute, the Athenaeum Foundation, The Circle: Germans, Jews, and Hoosiers in Conversation, IUPUI’s Max Kade Center, and IU’s Borns Jewish Studies Program to present IU Professor Mark Roseman, who will present a lecture that explores the remarkable explosion of teaching and scholarship on the Holocaust in the United States over the last fifty years. In the 1970s it would have been simply unthinkable that the Holocaust could dwarf the Second World War as a topic of memory, pedagogy and research. Now in teaching students about the Holocaust we often have to remind them that a world war was taking place at the same time. The implications of this shift for understanding Germany, Europe and the World is also a topic of the lecture.


The Viability of the Two State Solution, from the Ground Up

JCC’s Laikin Auditorium


The Israel Policy Forum works to shape the discourse and mobilize support among American Jewish leaders and U.S. policymakers for the realization of a viable two-state solution.  IPF does this by educating political and communal leaders on pragmatic policy ideas – developed by credible security experts.  David Halperin, Executive Director of IPF, will be bringing his scholarship and expertise to Indianapolis to help educate our community on the two-state solution.
