Friday, March 2, 12-1
Our group continues with its discussion of How We Lived: A Documentary History of Immigrant Jews in America 1880-1930 by Irving Howe and Kenneth Libo. Nearly 40 years ago, these authors gathered a collection of photographs, cartoons, drawings, posters, memoirs, newspaper pieces, and a running narrative to evoke the Jewish immigrant experience in America (copies of Howe and Libo’s social history can be purchased through Amazon.com). All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise or whether they attended previous sessions.
For March 2, we will discuss Parts 9 and 10, “Theatre” and “Culture,” of How We Lived (pp. 238-316). If you have any questions, call or email Jay Jacoby (298-9433/ firstname.lastname@example.org).
Here’s how the rest of our study of How We Lived is scheduled:
March 9: How We Lived, Part 11, “Beyond New York”
March 16: Screening of video West of Hester Street/sharing of our own family histories
March 23: Sharing of family histories/Siyyum (festive meal celebrating completion of a unit of study)
The Friday Noon Study Group will not meet on March 30 or April 6 in observance of Passover.
We will resume our studied on April 13 with an exploration of chapters 37-50 of the Book of Genesis: Joseph and his Brothers.
