"In Your Face: A Provocation in Amsterdam, A Scandal in Bohemia: On Secularization, Acculturation and the Jewish Beard"

When: Mon., March 24, 5:30 p.m. 2014

"In Your Face" explores the meanings and the misinterpretations associated with the beard and the shaven face in Jewish society. The 18th century is its focus, when most of European adult males were clean shaven, and the Jewish male visage could be read to indicate tradition and identity, acculturation and secularization.
