Location: Hybrid Meeting. Join us for our first in person meeting this year!
In Person at Reform Congregation Keneseth Israel, 8339 Old York Rd, Elkins Park, PA 19027
Approximately eighty percent of the world's Jews have a connection to Eastern Europe, and all of them once lived in a unique country called the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Join Zachary Mazur, Senior Historian at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, to discuss the key question of why Jews settled in Eastern Europe and what their lives looked like there. While discussing the larger historical narrative, we will focus on the stories of those living in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to paint a picture of Jewish life before the Great Migration that began in the 1880s.
This virtual seminar will incorporate POLIN's Core Exhibition, a journey through 1000 years of the history of Jews in Poland from the Middle Ages to the present day.
