Charles Richter, professor and director of theater in the Theater and Dance Department at Muhlenberg College, will give a talk entitled “An Evening with the Goldbergs.”
The program will examine the classic 1950s television show, the work of its creator and star, Gertrude Bell, and the program’s important place in 20th century American Jewish culture.
The event is part of a year-long series on Imagining Jews: From the Ancient World to the American Present. It is sponsored by the Jewish Studies program at Muhlenberg College, the Philip and Muriel Berman Center for Jewish Studies at Lehigh University, the Institute for Jewish-Christian Understanding at Muhlenberg College and the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley.
Program is free and open to the public thanks to a generous grant from the Legacy Heritage Jewish Studies Project, directed by the Association for Jewish Studies.
