From 'Helpmates' and Hadassah to Radicals and Rabbis: The Evolution of the Jewish Woman in American History

Ohr Kodesh Congregation

Dates: Monday, September 23, 2013
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Pamela S. Nadell

From colonial Philadelphia’s Rebecca Machado Phillips, who bore twenty-one children, and Henrietta Szold, whose Hadassah became the largest Jewish women’s organization in the U.S., to Red Emma Goldman and Rabbi Sally Priesand, we glimpse the enormous diversity of America’s Jewish women. This illustrated lecture highlights their changing roles and wide variety of experiences in this nation across more than 350 years.
