From roughly 1870 until about 1930, Harlem was the third largest Jewish community on the planet Earth – after Manhattan’s Lower East Side and Warsaw, Poland. Join New York Urban Historian Justin Ferate on this colorfully illustrated armchair tour of Jewish Harlem – viewing important landmarks, legendary people, and famous institutions that enriched this critical, but often-forgotten segment of Jewish history. Discover impressive reminders of Harlem’s tremendous Jewish cultural heritage. This lecture will prove transformational and will permanently alter whatever perceptions the phrase “Jewish Harlem” may bring to mind.
