John Efron is Koret Professor of History and Jewish Studies chair at the University of California, Berkeley. Efron’s academic focus is on the cultural and intellectual history of modern Jewry, with emphasis on the Jews of German-speaking Europe. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1991. Among Efron’s books is: Medicine and the German Jews: A History (2001). Efron will speak on the role played by medicine in the formation of modern Jewish identity in Germany. Having produced large numbers of physicians (and scientists), the character of German Jewry rapidly changed between 1800 and 1900 from a traditional and observant community to one that was secular, scientific and skeptical. This talk will trace that process and shed light on how medicine came to occupy such an exalted place among Jews that it became known as a quintessentially ‘Jewish’ profession.
