On April 12, 2010, Lilith Magazine and the American Jewish Historical Society held an exclusive event at the Society’s archives, bringing in three noted scholars to teach about American Jewish women’s history. Now, Lilith brings these amazing talks to you! Listen to Dr. Annie Polland, Prof. Hasia Diner and Prof. Deborah Dash Moore as they bring three generations of Jewish American history to life.
Dr. Annie Polland unveils 19th-century Jewish American history as encapsulated in the stories behind two sets of candle sticks. Don’t miss Prof. Hasia Diner telling the unknown history of Jewish women in colonial times. And enjoy Prof. Deborah Dash Moore teaching about the value of documents as she weaves a mosaic of Jewish women in the 20th century based on the prompts of actual archival items in the possession of the American Jewish Historical Society.
Thanks to all of these writers, thinkers and artists for making the event such a smashing success:
