What’s in a Name? Changing Trends in American Jewish Names

Sunday, March 19, 7:30 pm

Sponsored by the Women’s Network of Am Yisrael
Open to all members of Am Yisrael
via ZOOM

Which names do Jews and non-Jews associate most with Jewish people? How do Jews of different ages, ancestries, and religious orientations vary in the names they select for their children and their pets? How have American Jews’ names changed over time? Who names their children after living relatives, and who has a “Starbucks name”? Join us for a Zoom presentation by Professor Susan Bunin Benor on changing trends in names in the American Jewish community. Professor Benor is Vice Provost and Professor of Contemporary Jewish Studies at Hebrew Union College — Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles, and serves as founding director of the Jewish Language Project.
