The New York Jewish Experience

The New York Jewish Experience: History, Culture, Community
Wednesdays | begins February 14 | 6:30-7:45 pm | 10 sessions | Eli M. Black Lifelong Learning Center
Dr. David Kaufman

Join historian Dr. David E. Kaufman in an exploration of the past and present of ‘the world’s greatest Jewish city,’ New York. Major themes include the extraordinary contributions of Jews to the popular culture of the city and beyond; and the equally impressive record of communal structure and religious institutions that Jews have built in their ‘golden city,’ rightly called ‘the Jerusalem of America.’ Throughout, we will examine the remarkable convergence between the age-old traditions of Jewish life and the modern urbanism of NYC in forming the ‘New York Jew.’ Classroom discussion will be supplemented by tours of New York Jewish historical sites—details tba.
Tour costs are not included in the cost of the class.
