The Great Depression presented Jewish women with a unique set of challenges and choices. In response, Jewish women found new survival strategies to cope with the difficult economic conditions and changing family dynamics of these turbulent years.
The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program will offer a remote lecture titled “Budgets, Boycotts, And Babies: Jewish Women in the Great Depression” Thursday, May 20, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Beth Wenger, the Moritz and Josephine Berg Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania, will present this lecture.
