Generously funded by the Pearlstine/Lipov family in 2014, it brings together the resources of the College’s Jewish Studies Program, Addlestone Library’s Jewish Heritage Collection, and  The Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Southern Jewish women often played leading roles in local and state efforts to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment, whose centennial we celebrate in 2020. They were both Southern Ladies and New Women, fitting in to their societies as they challenged the southern conservative consensus. Women's vote impacted their lives not only in civil society but also in the synagogue.  Our presenter, Leonard Rogoff, holds a doctorate from the University of North Carolina, where he directed the English Writing Laboratory.
