Programs will be held throughout the semester, centered on the novel’s themes of racism, prejudice, and the dangers of stereotyping. READ MORE

The flat… is the cluttered Tel Aviv apartment of Mr. Goldfinger’s recently deceased grandmother, a German Jew who, along with her husband, emigrated in the 1930s from Berlin to pre-state Israel. Among the antiques and letters… was a commemorative coin bearing a swastika on one side and a Star of David on the other. This bizarre artifact would come to symbolize a slowly unraveling mystery, one that would eventually lead to a drowsy German suburb and the daughter of a high-ranking Nazi propagandist.
