Sholem Aleichem’s paradigm of Tevye’s rebellious daughters staking out new, secular alternatives to their parents’ traditional culture at the end of the 19th century has had a profound impact on our notions of East European Jewish women’s history. However, historians studying the women who tenaciously maintained tradition in the face of modernity have discovered that the effects of modernization on Jewish women were far more complex and varied. Join us for an afternoon of provocative discussions about the resourceful ways in which Jewish women in Eastern Europe navigated modernity from the late 19th century through the Holocaust. Elissa Bemporad and Glenn Dynner, co-chairs. For a full list of participants and details about the symposium, please visit www.cjh.org/jewishwomen.
