On February 23, 2021, Ithaca College was pleased to acknowledge a generous donation from Eve Homburger 77', Bradley Jacobs, and Marc Homburger Jacobs to establish the endowed Homburger Jacobs Contemporary Jewish Issues Lecture Series. In honor of their parents, Lore and Fred Homburger, and grandparents, Selma and Harry Jacobs, the fund will support a lecture series focusing on contemporary Jewish issues.
Our inaugural lecturer for this year's Homburger Jacobs Contemporary Jewish Issues Lecture Series will be Ashager Araro, Instagram Influencer and the founder of Battae Ethiopian Israeli Heritage Center. Araro will talk about antisemitism in social media, how we can fight against racism and antisemitism in our own communities, and her identity as a black Jewish Israeli woman. The lecuture will be followed by a 30 minute Q & A and a dessert reception for all in attendance. We are also grateful to Ithaca College's Hillel for partnering with us and helping make this event possible.
