The Coming of Age of American Jewry:
A Study through Film of the 1940s and 1950s
An Evening of Learning with Dr. Eric Goldman
 
The period after World War II should have been a time when Jewish people found great comfort in America. Instead, Jews remained concerned about anti–Semitism and various restrictions and quotas that limited Jewish inclusion. The House Un–American Activities Committee hearings, McCarthyism, and the executions of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg impacted how Jews felt about, and reacted to, their place in American society.
Dr. Goldman is one of the world's foremost scholars of Jewish cinema. He holds a doctorate in Cinema Studies from New York University and graduate degrees in Theater Arts and Contemporary Jewish Studies from Brandeis University. Dr. Goldman is an adjunct professor of cinema at Yeshiva University.
