Date/Time: Sunday, March 31, 2019, 10:00 a.m.
Location: Arnold Hall, Jewish Studies Center, 96 Wentworth, Charleston, S.C.
Pamela Nadel, Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History at American University, asks what does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America? Weaving together stories from the colonial era’s matriarch Grace Nathan and her great-granddaughter poet Emma Lazarus to union organizer Bessie Hillman and the Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Nadell shows two threads binding the nation’s Jewish women: a strong sense of self and a resolute commitment to making the world a better place. Informed by the shared values of America’s founding and Jewish identity, America’s Jewish women –the well-known and the scores of activists, workers, wives, and mothers whose names linger on among their communities and families – left deep footprints in the history of the nation they call home.
