America’s History of Imperfect Freedom

On Thursday, June 15th, the National Museum of American Jewish History out of Philadelphia is presenting a traveling lecture at the Blue Bell branch of the Wissahickon Valley Public Library.


American’s History of Imperfect Freedom

Although coming from different places and for different reasons, the Jews immigrating to America over the centuries have all shared a common dream: to live in freedom. But the freedom they found here has been imperfect, tainted by anti-Semitism, racism, and discrimination. This lecture explores how prejudice and social injustice, and responses to it, have shaped both the American Jewish community and its relationship to American society at large.

The program begins at 1:30 pm. You can register here.
