From Shtetl to Ghetto: Jewish Women on the Lower East Side: Thurs, May 16th @7pm. How did life in the shtetls (small Jewish villages) of Eastern Europe prepare Jewish women for life in the New World?

This discussion will explore how, in America, these women profited from more opportunities but suffered in their personal lives. Presented by Leslie Fishbein, Associate Professor of American Studies at Rutgers University, the program is funded by the NJ Council for the Humanities, and made possible in part by the NEH and the NJCH.
