American Jews and Social Justice: Activists' Perspectives

Sunday, April 23, 2023 2 Iyar 5783

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Guest speaker Dr. Reena Sigman Friedman, Associate Professor of Modern Jewish History at RRC and Adjunct Professor at Gratz College.

Why have Jews been disproportionately drawn to movements seeking greater justice, equality, and a better life for all Americans?

Please join us for a fantastic opportunity to consider this question as we explore the valuable contributions made by American Jews to various social justice movements in the United States with Dr. Reena Sigman Friedman. Together, we will examine excerpts from the speeches or writings of American Jewish social justice trailblazers, which offer insights into their ideas, visions, motivations, and accomplishments.

We will learn about Jewish suffragists, abolitionists, feminists, environmentalists, labor leaders, civil rights activists, and pioneers in healthcare advocacy, gay rights, and immigrant rights.
