America’s Jewish Women, A History from Colonial Times to Today
Sunday, May 17th at 2:30pm
America’s Jewish Women won the 2019 National Jewish Book Award – Jewish Book of the Year!
A groundbreaking history of how Jewish women 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? In a gripping historical narrative, Pamela S. Nadell weaves together the stories of a diverse group of extraordinary people―from the colonial-era matriarch Grace Nathan and her great-granddaughter, poet Emma Lazarus, to labor organizer Bessie Hillman and the great justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to scores of other activists, workers, wives, and mothers who helped carve out a Jewish American identity.
This program is presented in partnership with the Peninsula Jewish Historical Society and the UJCVP.
