Haven to Home: What America has Meant to Jews, and Vice Versa

by Tricia Labbe
(Boston, MA)

Special Lecture and Exhibit in partnership with Jewish Heritage Center at New England Historic Genealogical Society
with Michael Feldberg, PhD
Sunday, September 25, 2:00 - 4:00 PM
99-101 Newbury Street, Boston, MA

From the arrival of the first Jewish settlers in New Amsterdam in 1654 to the present, America has been the safest haven and most inclusive home the Jewish people have ever known. After early struggles to establish their full rights, Jews have benefited--as have all minorities--from living in a society based on constitutional rights. In turn, Jews have repaid America by contributing greatly in numerous walks of life. Michael Feldberg, PhD, curator of the From Haven to Home exhibition, will explore the reciprocal relationship between American Jews and the place they call home.

About the speaker: Michael Feldberg, PhD is the executive director of the George Washington Institute for Religious Freedom. He was previously executive director and director of research for the American Jewish Historical Society.
