Historical episodes involving Jewish spies, whether famous or infamous, intrigue us because of the heroism associated with them. Simply put, a Jewish James Bond is fun to think about. Yet these episodes also reveal larger aspects of the relationship between Jews, the Jewish community, and the state and society in which they are situated, bringing to the foreground issues of Jewish patriotism, politics, and solidarity.


The community is invited to learn with Professor Howard Lupovitch as he shares stories and perspectives on infamous Jewish spies from the 20th century. 


   June 28: Jew, American, Athlete, Spy — The Many Sides of Moe Berg
