Event description
A conference to explore the traditions, scope, limitations, and evolution of Jewish self-government in the Polish lands and beyond.

About this event

Few features have shaped east European Jewish history as much as the extent and continuity of Jewish self-rule. The conference launches Volume 34 of Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry, with papers from some of its main contributors.

The conference will have four panels: an introduction to the overall volume, a reflection on the emergence of the Jewish community in Poland-Lithuania with a strong legal framework of self-governance, a panel reflecting on the different trajectories negotiating Jewish self-governance in Poland and eastern Europe in the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, and a personal reflection on Jewish communal institution in the transition from the 1980s to the 1990s.

Jürgen Heyde (GWZO Leipzig): Autonomy and entanglement – on the Agency of Jewish communities in Early Modern Poland
