“How Frontier Jews Made American Judaism” @ Wells Hall, B-342
Sep 23 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The first mass migration in American Jewish history took place in the nineteenth century, during the era of westward expansion and manifest destiny. Dr. Rabin will discuss the experience of these Jewish migrants, focusing on the eclectic forms of religious life that they developed and what they can tell us about American Judaism in the twenty-first century.

Shari Rabin is currently Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies and Religion at Oberlin College. She is the author of Jews on the Frontier: Religion and Mobility in Nineteenth-Century America (New York University Press, 2017), which won the National Jewish Book Award in American Jewish Studies and was a finalist for the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature. Shari received a PhD in religious studies from Yale University in 2015.
