California Jews

“If you want to be poor all your life”, an Eastern European Jewish immigrant was told, “go to New York”. “If you want to be rich, go to the other side,” meaning California, where economic prosperity and social acceptance promised Golden State Jews opportunities unknown in the East. For many new Jewish immigrants, California became the new promised land, even as it challenged many New York-centered assumptions about American Jewish life. Whether you are native to California, New York, or anywhere in between, come hear a provocative talk that just might undo the way you think about American Jewry
