Co-presented with the American Jewish Historical Society
In 1967, Stephen Birmingham published his best-selling social history of New York’s elite German-Jewish banking families and posited a new, Jewish, American aristocracy. Historians Susie Pak (St. John’s) and Rebecca Kobrin (Columbia) join journalist Daniel Schulman (Mother Jones) to evaluate the legend and the reality of “Our Crowd” and the impact of the institutions they created on American life.

Admission is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. You can reserve tickets for the panel discussion here.

From the Leo Baeck Institute.
