America’s Jewish Women: Colonial Times to Today
March 5 , 7:00 pm
On the day of its publication, join us in launching Pamela Nadell’s “America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today,” a groundbreaking history of how Jewish women have maintained their identity and influenced social activism as they wrote themselves into American history.
What does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America? Chosen for JWA’s 2018-2019 bookshelf, this gripping historical narrative weaves together the stories of a diverse group of extraordinary people—from the colonial era’s Grace Nathan and her great-granddaughter Emma Lazarus to Bessie Hillman and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to scores of other activists, workers, wives, and mothers who helped carve out a Jewish American identity.
Co-sponsored with the American Jewish Historical Society.
