What are #TJHTalks?

​​#TJHTalks is our monthly webinar featuring pre-eminent scholars and cultural icons from around the world discussing Polish Jewish history and contemporary issues. Each episode is streamed live and is later available on our Youtube channel. Our goal is to spark thought-provoking conversations and allow participants to ask questions and exchange insights.

The Taube Center launched #TJHTalks in April 2020 as a way of staying in touch with its tour participants during the pandemic and expanding its mission of educating about Jewish Poland, past and present. The program is drawing international audiences and averages over 500 attendees per broadcast, making it one of the most attended ongoing webinars dedicated to Jewish history and culture.
