Medieval Jews & ChristiansLecture topic today is "The Rise of Eastern European Jewry" In this next-to-last lecture of the series, Ruderman covers the migration of Jews during the 14th and 15th centuries to Poland, where they were given opportunities to establish their own autonomous governments and communal institutions. In this receptive climate, he says, the "traditions of Ashkenazic rabbinical scholarship reached unsurpassed heights." Major academies of Jewish law appeared and large population centers developed. By the late 17th century, Eastern European Jewry had become the largest Jewish community in early modern Europe. Location: Albany Community Center, Room II.
