Jewish Labor in Early 20th Century NYC: Intersections and Tensions
Join AJHS on March 5th for a discussion on organized and informal Jewish labor movements in early 20th century New York City. This conversation hopes to interrogate how factors such as gender, class, race, religion, and religious observance both fostered these movements and also presented complex challenges to their goals, as well as expanding upon the intersections of the Jewish community in New York at this time with other ethnic and cultural populations. Panelists include Cameron Black, Alice Kessler-Harris, Tejasvi Nagaraja & Daniel Walkowitz with Mary Anne Trasciatti as moderator.
Tickets: $10 General Admission, $5 Student Tickets
