Event Details

Jews, particularly Jewish women, found unprecedented opportunity in the early American West. Jewish women here took advantage of those opportunities well in advance of women in other areas of the country and took leading positions in social welfare, business, education, the professions, and politics while at the same time ensuring Jewish continuity. Western Jewish women’s involvement at the vanguard of these efforts is striking given their relatively small numbers. They synthesized the Jewish, American, and western values they had developed, and in the process, they helped shape the contours of the future of western towns and cities as well as the American Jewish community. 90 minutes includes light refreshments and schmoozing. $5 in advance
