Art, the chair of the Trenton Jewish Historical Society, will delve into the immigrant periods of a displaced people adapting to a completely new environment. He will highlight, Trenton's institutions, its work and its eventual economic success, and explore the second generation Russian community along with the older and smaller German Jewish community. Trenton is one of many small cities that served as havens for Jewish refugees who came to the land of opportunity to eventually achieve the American dream. Art also plans to highlight the history of Beth El Synagogue, whose congregation dates back to 1906. Please join us for this fascinating look at our Jewish roots in the area.
