The DJHS Jim Schwartz Annual Lecture Series presents "Southern Jewish History on One Foot" with Dr. Josh Parshall of the Institute for Southern Jewish Life. From the development of Jewish communities in eighteenth-century port cities, to the rise and fall of small-town Jewish merchants, to the explosive growth of Jewish life in sunbelt cities like Atlanta and Houston; this talk packs 400 years of southern Jewish history into a brief overview that not only illustrates Jews' rich engagement with all aspects of the region's development, but demonstrates that these stories are important to southern history and Jewish history more generally.
