Pamela S. Nadell - America's Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today — in conversation with Rabbi Shira Stutman

Upcoming Event
Sunday, March 10, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

From Grace Nathan, born into a family of ardent American patriots, to her great-granddaughter Emma Lazarus, whose poem greets visitors to the Statue of Liberty, to Bessie Hillman, founder of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Jewish women have made their mark on this country in myriad and lasting ways. In her history of what it means to be a Jewish woman in America, Nadell, Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women's and Gender History and director of Jewish studies at American University, profiles the lives and work of women who have shown both a strong sense of self and a dedication to improving the world. Nadell will be in conversation with Rabbi Shira Stutman, senior rabbi at Sixth & I and the scholar-in-residence for the National Women’s Philanthropy program at the Jewish Federations of North America.
