Jews, Liquor, and Life

February 23 , 2:30 pm

Ann Toback, CEO, The Workers Circle, moderates a Taube Center discussion with two scholars about the Jewish roots of the liquor business and the historical role of the tavern. Glenn Dynner’s landmark work, “Yankel’s Tavern: Jews, Liquor, and Life in the Kingdom of Poland,” is a comprehensive study of Jewish-run taverns in Eastern Europe. Adam Teller, a scholar of 17th- and 18th-century European Jewish history, looks at the tavern as one of the era’s central communal institutions. Register here.
