Professor, Yossi Chajes, Ph.D. will be our guest speaker. His topic: "Exorcists, Dybbuks, Demons, Oh My!" He is Professor of Jewish History at the Univ. of Hqifa and Director of its Cent4er for the Study of Jewish Cultures. He is recipient of Fulbright, Rothschild, Wexner, and Hartman Fellowships. His studies have explored Jewish Women's mysticisim, Jewish autobiographical writing, the history of Jewish attitudes towards magic and, most recently, the unstudied genre of Kabbalidtic diagrams. The subject is enticing and the speaker is dynamic!
