JGS Toronto Event: The Not So Mythical Village of Chelm

December 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Speaker:  Steven Brock

Jewish folklore is filled with stories about the village of Chelm. Outsiders consider the villagers as fools, but they know that they are the great sages of the world and that their logic always makes perfect sense – at least to them. Although Chelm seems like a mythical place, it is in fact a real village in south-east Poland. In his presentation, Steven will recount the history of the real life village and how it got its humorous and less than flattering reputation
