War of Shadows: Codebreakers, Spies, and the Secret Struggle to Drive the Nazis from the Middle East

October 12, 2022 noon

Noted historian and journalist Gershom Gorenberg in conversation with AJU's Michael Berenbaum for the real story of how the Nazis came within an inch of conquering the Middle East during World War II. Gershom's latest book, War of Shadows, began with a conversation in Jerusalem that set off years of searching through archives for long-secret documents, through attics for lost papers, through streets in Cairo, Rome, London – seeing facts unravel and new ones take shape. Gershom's obsessive hunt led to the discovery of a Nazi source in British headquarters in Cairo and his book tells the story of the race for information in the North African theater of World War II, set against intrigues that spanned the Middle East.  Buy the book HERE

Why Israel has Basic Laws but not a constitution?

Oct. 12 7:30 pm

Professor Michal Tamir is a Hellen Diller visiting Professor in UC Berkeley

Israel is a uniquely instructive source for engagement and reflection on constitutional law. Though it has no one formal constitution, after five decades with no written constitution it transitioned in the 1990s towards a constitutional regime, with the enactment of two basic laws that focused on human rights; ‘Freedom of Occupation’ and ‘Human Dignity and Liberty’.

Following their enactment, the Israeli Supreme Court declared that all basic laws had normative supremacy over regular laws. Thus, the 13 basic laws in Israel function as a constitution, albeit an incomplete one, as its contours are still being negotiated.

The lecture will review the constitutional history of Israel from the Declaration of Independence to date and will explain the processes that led to the complicated constitutional situation.

Antisemitism on Social Media

Oct. 19 9 am

Sabine von Mering, Monika Hübscher, Sophie von Schmalenberger and Navras Aafreedi will discuss the new book 'Antisemitism on Social Media'.

A History of American Jewish Politics and Identities

Oct. 20 noon

In Emily Tamkin’s book, Bad Jews examines the last 100 years of American Jewish politics, culture, identities, and arguments. Drawing on over 150 interviews, she tracks the evolution of Jewishness throughout American history, and explores many of the evolving and conflicting Jewish positions on assimilation, race, Zionism and Israel, affluence, and poverty, philanthropy, finance, politics, and social justice. From this complex and nuanced history, Tamkin and her interviewer Jonathan Dobrer will help us pinpoint the one truth about American Jewish identity: It is always changing. Buy the book HERE.

Daniel Chernilo, Professor of Sociology, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, Chile, talks about Sigmund Freud, Jewish identity and antisemitism:
“Freud’s Moses and monotheism: Right argument at the wrong time?” 

Nov. 2 9 am

Published soon after his death in 1939, Freud completed his last book on Moses and Monotheism while already living in exile, in London. Freud was painfully aware of the unhappy timing of this publication, given that two of the book’s main theses could be interpreted as a form of Jewish self-hatred. The first claim questions the Jewish origins of Moses and contends instead that the founder of the Jewish faith was in fact an Egyptian; the second suggests that, in order to hide this impure origin, the Jews killed Moses and then created the myth of Moses the liberator as a way of concealing their terrible deed. In In this talk, I offer three main arguments: (1) a reassessment of the reactions to Freud’s book among such leading 20th century Jewish intellectuals as Martin Buber and Leo Straus; (2) a reconstruction of Freud’s positive thesis that there is something uniquely syncretic in Jewish identity; (3) a critique of Freud’s essentialist thesis on the obduracy and obstinacy of antisemitism in Western culture.

”Dreyfus in Babylonia” 1948 Iraq showtrial of Shafiq Adas
and the fate of the MENA Jews

November 16 9 am

Adi Schwartz

Shafiq Adas, considered the wealthiest Jew in Iraq, was hanged outside his Basra mansion on September 23, 1948, after a kangaroo court found him guilty of treason and aiding the "Zionist enemy." His execution sent shockwaves throughout the millennia-old Jewish community in Iraq, and is mentioned together with the 1941 pogrom of the Farhud as a main reason for the hurried 1950-1951 Jewish exodus from Iraq. Adas' tragic story and its significance – the deliberate targeting of a prominent Jew as a scapegoat by the government – is hardly known both in Israel and around the world. As a nasty academic trend is gaining strength, denying and minimizing anti-Jewish sentiments and actions in Arab-dominated countries, the Adas' affair reminds us that Middle Eastern Jews, just as anywhere else, suffered from discrimination and persecution, and eventually had to flee their birth countries. At a time when antisemitic tropes in the West are used against the Jewish State, accusing it of being "white," "colonialist," and "imperialist," the Adas afair could serve as a strong rebuttal of the anti-Zionist narrative and remind us that Jews are native to the Middle East, and that it was not "Ashkenazi European Zionism" that ruined a fictitious Jewish-Muslim harmony.

Brad Blitz, Professor of International Politics and Policy at UCL

This talk chronicles the debate over the acceptance of the IHRA definition at UCL, and subsequent moves to replace it with an alternative definition. It describes how academic processes and norms were subverted to support the goals of a small group of academics, rather than prioritise the protection of students from antisemitic harassment and bullying on campus.
