Here are the details (they will be updated soon):
Our guide from the Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy will lead us on a fascinating exploration. We’ll discuss the interrelationships among labor activism, leftist political thought, Yiddish culture/language, and Jewish tradition.
We'll listen, talk, debate, and sing!
Visit the Sixth Street Community Center, formerly Congregation Yeshurun Shara Torah, and learn about the vivid socialist motif murals that share space with historic memorial plaques.
Discuss Abraham Cahan, legendary socialist editor of the Jewish Daily Forward; Emma Goldman, anarchist and lecturer; Clara Lemlich, leftist and strike leader; celebrated local authors Anzia Yezierska, and Meyer London (the first socialist elected to the House of Representatives).
Learn the Yiddish Cloakmaker's Song, and the American labor classic Joe Hill in Mamaloshen (Yiddish).
