Julius Rosenwald: Repairing the World
Hosted By: Park Avenue Synagogue
Julius Rosenwald rose to meteoric wealth at the helm of Sears, Roebuck and Co., yet his most important legacy stands on the pioneering changes he introduced to the practice of philanthropy. His passionate support of Jewish and African American causes continues to influence lives to this day, though he refused to have his name attached to the buildings, projects, or endowments he supported. Hasia R. Diner’s biography of Rosenwald explores topics of tikkun olam, philanthropy, and the importance of partnership in building a better future.
Hasia R. Diner is Paul and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish History and director of the Goldstein-Goren Center for American Jewish History at New York University. She is a two-time winner of the National Jewish Book Award. She lives in New York City.
