Exorcising Demons and Making Monsters: Jewish Folklore in the Movies

Halloween is here!

Join Prof. Jennifer Fleeger from MCS and Prof. Alexandria Frisch from Religious Studies to explore how Jewish ideas about the supernatural found their way into contemporary film and television. We'll be watching clips that feature dybbuks and golems, discussing the background of these figures in Jewish folklore, and tracing their impact on the horror genre.

Spooky refreshments will be served!
