Watch an interview with Emanuel Ringelblum Professor of Jewish History David Biale:

With a resurgence of anti-Semitism across Europe, promoting Jewish culture can be a powerful vehicle for confronting anti-Semitism and strengthening a positive Jewish identity. Here in Germany, the Jewish Studies Department at Frankfurt University continues its highly respected conference series on the cultural history of the Jews with American historian David Biale, a leading international expert on Jewish history and culture. With Jewish communities now present in 75 countries, Jewish culture and Jewish identity are beginning to play an increasingly larger role in a globalized, multicultural world.
