Jewish Agriculturalism in the Garden State #usa #announcements

Sherri Bobish

Hi 'Genners,

This may be of interest, especially to those who have ancestors who farmed in NJ and elsewhere.

Rutgers University will present a free talk via Zoom on
Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 1pm Eastern Standard Time.

The topic is:  Jewish Agriculturalism in the Garden State.

According to the announcement, to be discussed is farming,  "not only in New Jersey, but also the Americas, Europe, and Israel."

Link to register:

From the above site:
"Bildner Visiting Scholar Jonathan Dekel-Chen will introduce a new online exhibit that he developed at Rutgers about the history of Jewish farming--not only in New Jersey, but also the Americas, Europe, and Israel. The exhibition takes a deep dive into the amazing story of Jewish agriculture in New Jersey, where three generations of Jews planted roots in a new country, made New Jersey bloom, and pursued the American dream. It also tells the important and striking story of large-scale Jewish farming on four continents."

I have no affiliation with this program, and have no further information.
