Dr. Evelyn Maria Dean-Olmsted, Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Pidras, will analyze how in the late 2000s, young Shami (Damascene) and Halebi (Aleppan) Jewish Mexicans were coming of age amidst a boom in ultra-Orthodox or Haredi outreach activity, and how they struggled to craft a religiosity that was both personally meaningful and intelligible to those in their social networks.
