AMERICAN SHTETL: SATMAR HASIDISM BLOSSOMS IN UPSTATE NEW YORK

Thursday, January 20, 2022 18 Shevat 5782

3:00 PM - 3:45 PMZoom

DESCRIPTION

Nomi Stolzenberg and David Myers chronicle how a small contingent of Hasidic families established a town in upstate New York that became a thriving insular enclave and controls a powerful local government. This community, Kiryas Joel, has been successful in creating a world apart by using the very instruments of political and legal power that it disavows.

Join Stolzenberg and Myers in conversation with AJU’s Prof. Michael Berenbaum, as they explore religious, social, and economic norms and delve into the roots of Satmar Hasidism.
