Jewish Dayton in the Roaring ’20s: A Brunch Discussion with Marshall Weiss
January 26 @ 9:45 am - 11:00 am
We made Kiddush during Prohibition. Americanized Judaism. Battled immigration restrictions. Debated Zionism. Fought prostitution and the Klan. And you ain’t heard nothin’ yet!
Nosh on brunch as Marshall Weiss, editor and publisher of The Dayton Jewish Observer and author of Jewish Community of Dayton, shares stories he’s unearthed of how Dayton’s Jews navigated tradition and modernity in a decade with challenges surprisingly similar to those we face today.
$7 per person, payable at the door. RSVP to the Jewish Federation of Greater Dayton at (937) 610-1555 by January 22.
Presented by Temple Israel’s Ryterband Lecture Series, Beth Abraham Synagogue Sunday Brunch Speaker Series, in partnership with Miami Valley Jewish Genealogy & History.
This event is presented in memory of Marcia Jaffe.
