THE JEWISH WORLD OF ELVIS PRESLEY A Conversation with Author Roselle Chartock

When: Mon., Feb. 8, 3-4:30 p.m.

Elvis and Jews: At first glance these two words may not seem to go together. But the truth is that, despite growing up in a fundamentalist Christian family in the Deep South - an area sometimes known for its anti-Semitism - Elvis Presley nevertheless developed a deep affinity to Jews. Join us for a lively talk and discussion focusing on two questions: What accounted for this deep affinity? And what was the nature of the personal relationships Elvis developed with the Jews he befriended in Memphis and those he met in the music and movie industries?
