The Jews of Long Island – Hybrid
February 26, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Presenter: Brad Kolodny, president of the Jewish Historical Society of Long Island
He will discuss his new book — The Jews of Long Island, 1705-1918. The book tells the story of how Jewish communities were established and developed east of New York City, from Great Neck to Greenport and Cedarhurst to Sag Harbor, laying the foundation for what has become the fourth largest Jewish community in the U.S. today. Archival material — including census records, newspaper accounts, never-before-published photos, and personal family histories — illuminate Jewish life and experiences during these formative years.
