American Israelites: Cincinnati and the

Shaping of Jewish Community in the United States
Thursday, January 20 at 6:00 pm ET
The Mercantile Library, 414 Walnut St., Cincinnati

Professor Karla Goldman, Director of the Jewish Communal Leadership Program at the University of Michigan, will discuss her upcoming book, “American Israelites: Cincinnati and the Shaping of Jewish Community in the United States.” Tracing Cincinnati’s rise and fall as a leading center of American Jewish life, Professor Goldman will show that the communal choices of Cincinnati’s Jews resulted in a particular kind of American identity – one that affirmed both difference and belonging.

Avondale History Lecture Series: Jewish Avondale
Saturday, January 22 at 12:00 pm ET
Avondale Branch Library, 3566 Reading Road, Cincinnati

Professor Karla Goldman will explore the distinct era from the 1920s through the 1950s when the streets of Avondale were home to a very American way of being Jewish and a very Jewish way of being American. The former synagogue buildings that still populate Reading Road and Forest Avenue today offer glimpses of the vibrant Jewish social, religious, and communal fabric that filled this neighborhood at this time.
