This year's Fleischman lecturer is Professor Sarah Abrevaya Stein, the Maurice Amado Chair in Sephardic Studies and the Sady and Ludwig Kahn Director of the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies at UCLA, who will be speaking on the topic of "The Sephardic Twentieth Century: An Intimate History." One of the leading scholars in the world of Sephardic Jewry, Professor Stein will discuss her most recent work, Family Papers: A Sephardic Journey through the Twentieth Century (FSG, 2019), where she uses the letters of the sprawling Levy family, originally of Salonica, to tell not only their history, but the history of Sephardic Jews in the twentieth century.
