Occidens Proximus Orienti: The Manilaner Kapwa – Coronado
August 2, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
8:30 am – 10:00 am Coronado
Over 1,300 European Jews found refuge from the Holocaust in the Philippines, inspiring in them utang na loob that has lasted decades. When SuperTyphoon Haiyan wreaked havoc in the Philippines in November 2013, Jews in the US and Israel— including Manilaners—gave generously in memory of the WWII sanctuary, enacting not only utang na loob but the Jewish value of tikkun olam. This presentation will explore the Manilaner history’s past and on-going transnational, transethnic, interfaith, and multigenerational cross-fertilization of utang na loob and tikkun olam Kapwa.
