Teaching with Jewish Historical Archives: Yiddish New York in the 1900’s

Open to: All Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Join us in a conversation with Miriam Schulz and Amanda Seigel about Jewish life in the early 1900s and how the newspaper
The Jewish Daily Forward (Forverts) was an important record of immigrant activism and civic life during that time.

Participants will gain insight into the activism and community building of Yiddish-speaking New Yorkers at the turn of the twentieth century and get a sneak preview of the Center for Educators and Schools’ forthcoming curriculum project about the relationship between activism and reform in New York City’s tenements.

Eligible NYS educators will receive 1 hour of CTLE credit.
