World War I and American Jews
May 6, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
I will speak on the effects of World War I on the American Jewish community. Beginning with the mass influx of Jews in the late 1800s through their service as soldiers in France and their experiences after the war, he will describe the Jews’ transformation from “immigrants” to “Americans” in their own eyes and those of their non-Jewish neighbors. He will also discuss how American institutions came to dominate the Jewish world after the war. This event is not open to the public.
