Upcoming Sisterhood Events

Jewish Voices Muslim Lands; Jewish Women Teachers of the Alliance Israélite Universelle
Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 7:30-8:30pm

The Sisterhood of Temple Ohabei Shalom, in conjunction with TOS Adult Education Committee, presents their first virtual event featuring Professor Frances Malino of Wellesley College. 

Drawing from thousands of letters, some rescued at the end of World War II, Frances Malino will explore the complex and inspiring lives of a pioneering generation of Jewish women teaching in a network of schools extending from Tetouan in Morocco to Teheran in Iran. Come join TOS Sisterhood and Adult Education for a fascinating look at how Jewish women kept education alive.  This is a most relevant topic in light of many happenings in the world today.

We are pleased to welcome Frances Malino who is the Sophia Moses Robison Professor of Jewish Studies and History Emerita at Wellesley College.  She is author of The Sephardic Jews of Bordeaux: Assimilation and Emancipation in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France (1978) and A Jew in the French Revolution: The Life of Zalkind Hourwitz (1996) and co-editor of Essays in Modern Jewish History: a Tribute to Ben Halpern (1982), The Jews in Modern France (1985), Profiles in Diversity: Jews in a Changing Europe (1998), and Voices of the Diaspora: Jewish Women Writing in the New Europe (2005). Her current project is titled Teaching Freedom: Jewish Sisters in Muslim Lands. Recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, in 2012 she was named Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Palmes académiques by the French Ministry of Education.
