Just the mention of this year's topic - "Greco-Turkish-Yiddish Connections" provokes immediate questions. We've invited a variety of experts in music, history, cultural studies and more to enlighten us with talks that are informative but informal, with plenty of time for Q&A and discussions. Please see the schedule for details about the day's speaker and topic.
