March 5: Manhattan: History Of American Jewish Women
Join Forward writer-at-large Jane Eisner in conversation with American University’s Pamela Nadell as they celebrate the publication of her new book, “American Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today.”
In her book, Nadell delves into how Jewish women have fought for change and shaped history, sharing the stories of extraordinary figures from Colonial-era poet Emma Lazarus to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Learn about how Jewish women have influenced social activism at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 at the Center for Jewish History in Manhattan. It is sponsored by the American Jewish Historical Society.
