Coming to America Part II

Description

Coming to America Part II: Stories of Immigration
Three Tuesdays: November 14, 28, December 12 (note that these are not successive dates).
Join Rabbi Berkowitz as we continue our conversation about the immigrant experience. Through an exploration of Jewish short fiction--and real letters from the Bintel Brief advice column in the Forward--we will see how this historic period of migration played out in the lives of new Americans. How did they deal with the challenges of culture shock, adaptation, and assimilation?

11/14 Scenes from Hester Street: Abraham Cahan’s “Yekl.”
11/ 28 The Problem of Well-Meaning Americans: Anzia Yezeirska’s “Free Vacation House.”
12/12 The First December Dilemma: Grace Paley’s “The Loudest Voice.”
