    Explore the ways of 19th to 21st century Russian Jewry through survey of literature, film, and art.

Selected works of Pushkin and Chekhov, Sholom Aleichem and Chagall, Pasternak and Yevtushenko will help create a multidimensional picture of the political and socio-cultural environment that shaped the identity of the modern-day Russian Jews in their deep, inherent connection to the Russian culture and often in disconnect with their roots, which characteristically distinguishes them from their American contemporaries.
