What is the future of Holocaust memory, particularly with fewer survivors as purveyors of that memory? What tools do Jewish history and ritual offer us on how to remember responsibly? How does the position of Jews as a minority or majority impact the contours of how we remember?
Hitkansut is an experiential and participatory ritual practiced by Israelis, and more recently, North Americans to honor and preserve the memory of the Shoah. Join Rani Jaeger, one of the Israeli architects of Hitkansut, and Rachel Jacoby Rosenfield, who spearheaded the English adaptation of Hitkansut, for a conversation around the creation and durability of new rituals and the role of Jewish trauma and memory in the Israeli and North American public squares.
This program is part of Ideas for Today, curated courses by Hartman Institute scholars on the big Jewish ideas we need to think better and do better.
