Kinship, Commerce and Community: The Beginnings of Jewish Philadelphia
Start Date: 5/24/2017Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 5/24/2017End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description
The Judaic Studies program and the Department of Anthropology of Drexel University present “Kinship, Commerce, and Community: The Beginnings of Jewish Philadelphia,” a lecture by Toni Pitock, PhD, Department of History, University of Delaware.


Philadelphia’s earliest Jewish settlers created a web of connections that was reinforced by necessity, trust, and mutual obligation. In the absence of any Jewish institution, they collaborated in observing their religion and relied on one another as they established themselves in business.

Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.  Support for this event comes from the Louis and Bessie Stein Foundation, The Milton and Miriam Handler Foundation, and the Friends of Judaic Studies. Info: judaicstudies@drexel.edu, 215.895.6388.  Hosted by The Judaic Studies Program.
