Most of us learn the history of Jews and Judaism in the modern period from scholarly history texts and original document.  This provides an invaluable view of the big picture, but also leaves out the lived dimension of the events and developments.

                          * How did particular Jewish men and women, living in widely separated and quite different communities,                                   experience the many challenges and changes of modernity?

                          *Perhaps even more significantly, how did these individual experiences and the many sorts of feeling                                        they evoked, go on to shape new Jewish hopes and projects?
