From the development of Jewish communities in eighteenth-century port cities to the rise and fall of small-town Jewish merchants to the explosive growth of Jewish life in sunbelt cities like Miami and Atlanta, Jews have been deeply engaged with the development of the American South. This session packs 400 years of Southern Jewish history into a digestible, interactive presentation that illustrates the Jewish South's importance to both Southern and Jewish histories.
