Step inside a fascinating world of Jews who relate to their Jewishness through the vehicle of punk. Why did punk—a subculture and music style characterized by a rejection of established norms—appeal to Jews? How did Jews who were genuinely struggling with their Jewish identity find ways to express it through punk rock? Michael Croland will give a multimedia presentation based on his book, Oy Oy Oy Gevalt! Jews and Punk. Na Nach Oi! (featuring Yishai Romanoff of Moshiach Oi!) will perform acoustic renditions of Jewish punk songs.

MORRELL PARK: PROJECTED

Premiere Screening

 

March 22nd, Evening

 

Time TBD

 

Join us for the premiere screening of MORRELL PARK: PROJECTED  that will  take place on Thursday evening, March 22nd at the Jewish Museum of Maryland.  Mark your calendars so that you reserve a seat to meet these 8th grade students and celebrate their family stories and the community of Morrell Park.

 

Morrell Park: PROJECTED is a collaborative effort between the JMM and Morrell Park that is intended to provide students with opportunities to learn about sharing their family histories in meaningful ways. With the assistance of J. Scott Fuqua, an award winning young adult author, and Johns Hopkins University film students, our year-long project will teach participating 8th grade students how to interview family members and then develop and share their personal stories with a broader community. Two films will be developed over the course of the program: One film with showcase the short stories and interviews that the students edited on their smart phones.  A second film will be the actual documentation of working with the students throughout the year in the classroom and in the Morrell Park community.

 

Morrell Park: Projected was supported by a generous Excellence Grant from Wells Fargo.
