Many associate Jewish America and its history with New York, but how and when did Jews end up West of the Mississippi? What did they do in the American West? How did westward travel and homesteading change the way Jews, especially women, engaged with their faith? There may be more “Old World” in the “Old West” than you’d expect!

The program is free, seating is limited.
