Though the Museum’s physical building is closed for now, we are offering new programming through our Facebook page. You do not need to be on Facebook to watch these programs, just exit out of the login request if prompted. If you miss the programs when they are live, the recorded videos are available from our Facebook page.

On Tuesday, author Helen Epstein (Children of the Holocaust, The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma) read from Franci’s War, a new memoir by her late mother Franci Rabinek Epstein. Watch the program here >

And earlier today, University of Toronto Professor of Yiddish Studies Anna Shternshis gave an interactive lecture on Yiddish humor, telling the story of what Soviet Jews found funny and why as they lived through the darkest period of modern Jewish history in Europe. Watch the program here >

We look forward to bringing you more digital programs. To keep alerted to our upcoming programs, sign up to receive our email newsletter.
