Roaming the American West: Jewish Settlement and Identity

Hosted By: Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

Westward ho! Join beloved faculty member, Dr. Joellyn Zollman for an incredible adventure where you will journey through the richness of American Jewish history on what some say is the “best” coast: the west coast. Discover what brought American Jews to the West, where they settled, how the Jews of these communities were shaped by their broader environment, and the significant role they played in creating the American West as we know it.
