Dr. Jonathan Krasner will spea about how the struggle between Jewish parents and children over assimilation has become a central motif in Jewish themed American films.  How has the conversation over what it means to be a Jew in America changed between 1927 and the 21st century, as reflected in three popular films - The Jazz Singer, Fiddler On The Roof and Keeping the Faith.
