Farming defies the traditional image of American-Jewish success, but the Jewish farmer played an important and largely forgotten role in the American Jewish immigrant experience.
Jonathan Dekel-Chen, the Allen and Joan Bildner Visiting Scholar, will introduce the virtual exhibit he developed at Rutgers, featuring photos, interviews, and music inspired by Jewish rural life.
Free and Open to the Public
RSVP required through website:
