A lecture by Adriana Brodsky
Young Jewish men and women who were active in Jewish communal institutions debated whether or not to participate in Argentine political youth groups. Mostly training to eventually move to Israel, many of these young Jews nevertheless chose not to be apathetic to an existing political climate that increasingly viewed young people as agents of change. This presentation explores the paths taken by these young Jewish men and women as they navigated these charged political times.
