The period between World War I and World War II in America was a time of tremendous flux that radically reconfigured Jewish life. In this webinar, Dr. Miriam Mora, the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center's Historian in Residence, discusses how the Great Depression, the rise of American antisemitism, and the immigration restrictions of the 1920s all contributed to a Jewish redefinition of place and belonging in the American landscape.
