Join us as we commemorate the 125th anniversary of Theodor Herzl’s “The Jewish State.” Watch the premiere screening of “Herzlmania,” a short film celebrating David Matlow’s Theodor Herzl Memorabilia Collection, the world’s largest private collection of Herzl artifacts. Then take a deeper look at the legacy of this pivotal figure in a lecture by Herzl’s biographer, Derek Penslar, the William Lee Frost Professor of Jewish History at Harvard University and author of “Theodor Herzl: The Charismatic Leader (Yale University Press, 2020). Filmmaker Daniel Mooney directed “Herzlmania,” and the film was commissioned by the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.
