Fraunces Tavern Museum and AJHS Present: Jews in Colonial New York
Free with RSVP
Online via Zoom
Join us for a discussion about the lives of New York City Jews in the colonial era. We’ll look at community spaces such as the Sephardic Mill Street Synagogue, now known as Shearith Israel and the oldest synagogue in America. We’ll examine the influence of the Gomez and Judah families, the scandal of the Franks family, and the legacy of Haym Soloman’s Revolutionary war financing.
