L’dor V’dor Judaica with Emily Scheinfeld

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

L’dor V’dor Judaica rehomes Judaica, giving it another life and bringing joy and light into the lives of those who receive it. They source Judaica from thrift shops, estate and tag sales, and the trash so that these found items continue to be used and appreciated in Jewish homes. Through a focus on the use of Judaica in celebration and storytelling, L’dor V’dor Judaica seeks to build community among all Jews in Atlanta. Learn more on their website.
Emily Scheinfeld is an assistant professor of Communication at Kennesaw State University, she has a Ph.D. in Interpersonal Communication from the University of Texas at Austin. Her research focuses on improving internal family health communication around issues like death, genetic testing, drugs, and the choice to be a donor. Emily founded L’dor V’dor Judaica after realizing how expensive new Judaica can be and exploring secondhand Judaica as a more affordable option. After fulfilling her own needs for ritual practice, she continued to purchase what she found, knowing that there must be Jews who want to use Judaica and have Jewish art but cannot afford or seek it out themselves.
This is the eleventh program in our Judaica Project lecture series. In these monthly Zoom sessions on Judaica, Jewish art, and what these mean to you, speakers present a different type of topic related to Judaica or Jewish art to prompt discussion with and among the audience. Attendees are invited to ask questions and share their own experiences at the end of this session. This series is a collaboration with the Peter C. Hereld House for Jewish Life at Quinnipiac University and is made possible by a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.
