With a view across the last century from Philadelphia and beyond, Dr. Berman, Director of the Feinstein Center for American Jewish History at Temple University, explains the spatial and emotional terrain of American Jewish life as fundamentally urban. Far from stable entities, cities formed along constantly shifting lines of class, race, religion, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality. In the boundaries and breaches of these divisions, American Jews have pursued some of the most radical experiments in social living and, also, reinforced some of the most hierarchical social structures. Sponsored by the Broder family.
