Mónica Unikel-Fasja

Mexico’s Jewish population is largely unknown to the general public, and even fewer know that there is a Mexican Jewish population in Chicago. Listen in as Mónica Unikel-Fasja, author of a Spanish-language book that translates as Synagogues of Mexico, gives voice to the incredible architecture and history of synagogues in Mexico and examines what it means to be Jewish in both cultures. This program is collaboration with the National Museum of Mexican Art and the American Jewish Committee.

This program is part of a series of programming running in conjunction with the exhibition Shalom Chicago, which runs from October 21, 2012 through September 2, 2013.
