As part of Rutgers 250 commemoration, three leading scholars of American Jewish history will probe the state of Jewish life in America on key dates tied to the founding of Rutgers: 1766, 1866, and 1966. These historians will initiate the discussion by each examining an artifact of Jewish life in America: a letter about a Jewish family living in colonial New Brunswick, a mid-nineteenth-century local charity roll, and a landmark ’60s rock album.

Free and open to the public. RSVP requested to: csjlrsvp@rci.rutgers.edu or call 848-932-2033.
