In this lecture, Dr. Berlin will draw on archeological evidence to showcase how ancient Judeans in the first century BCE began the practice of “household Judaism,” using specific goods to infuse homes and lives with a religious sensibility and common material identity that was noticeably distinct from the cosmopolitan lifestyles surrounding them.

This lecture is in memory of the late Professor Jerry Rosenberg, a formative leader of the Jewish studies program at the University of Pittsburgh.

This event is co-sponsored by The Jewish Studies Program, Nationality Rooms and Intercultural Exchange Programs and the Israel Heritage Room Committee.
