“Jews Heathens and Infidels”: Southern Jewish Beginnings

Part 1 of a mini-course offering an overview of the history of Jews in the southern United States from colonial times until the present. We will explore some of the key events of southern Jewish history, seeking to understand how Jews have confounded, complicated, and conformed to the region’s “peculiar” norms and categories. Presented by Dr. Shari Rabin, director of the Pearlstine/Lipov Center for Southern Jewish Culture.
