Jews In America

Hosted By: National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene

Ever since the first Jewish immigrant arrived in North America four centuries ago, Jews have made significant contributions to American society. Countless Jewish Americans have untold stories of courage, sacrifice, and devotion to our country. They include Moses Seixas, a member of the Newport Hebrew Congregation in Rhode Island who corresponded with George Washington; Phoebe Pember, a Jewish nurse in the Civil War; and Rabbi Joseph Krausdopf, who fought for women’s suffrage.

Hear their stories, and the true stories of ordinary people wrestling with family and identity, in Jews in America—a celebration of being Jewish and being American. This live virtual theatrical production is produced by The Braid, formerly Jewish Women’s Theatre, and hosted in recognition of Independence Day the following week.
