  6. THE SIMPSONS & OTHER JEWISH FAMILIES: MEET WRITER & PRODUCER MIKE REISS

    Lectures & Book Talks
    When The Simpsons started thirty years ago, no one thought it would last more than six weeks. Who was going to watch a cartoon? The rest is history. In retrospect, writer/producer Mike Reiss thinks that may be the reason for the show’s success. No one cared. Reiss is the Emmy and Peabody award-winning writer and producer for The Simpsons, and the co-author of Sprinkled Condential: Jokes, Secrets and Outright Lies from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons. Complimentary brunch! Book Signing to follow.

In Harbin, Manchuria, enter the largest synagogue in East Asia. In Nanjing, visit the memorial to the 1937 massacre carried out by the Japanese and ponder the similarities between the genocidal occupation of China and Nazi Germany’s subjugation of Eastern Europe. In Shanghai, walk through the former ghetto, a refuge during the Holocaust for almost 25,000 Jews. From the Jewish merchants in the 19th century treaty port of Tianjin, to Israeli entrepreneurs, scientists, and engineers in today’s China, experts will help us consider the interaction of two of the world’s oldest civilizations.
