“West of Hester Street: The Galveston Movement and Jewish Immigration in the Southwest”

Between the years 1907 and 1914, the port of Galveston, Texas served as a point of entry for Jews either directly from eastern Europe or a resettlement of Jews from the crowded streets and tenements of New York’s Lower East Side, commonly known as Hester Street and its surrounding blocks. 

Because The Galveston Movement played such as significant role in 20th century Jewish History of the Southwest, the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society and the Texas Jewish Historical Society are partnering to organize the 2021 Fall Conference in Las Cruces, N.M. We share common stories and history.
