Cultural Survivals From The Great Jewish Migration To NYC: 1881-1924
with Michael Chaplan

Tuesday November 20, 2018
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM

This presentation has an anthropological focus with an illustrative narrative that first tells the story of the “Great Jewish Migration”, which brought 1.5 million East European Jews to NYC 1881-1924 and their processing at Ellis Island. Then it surveys their remaining lifeway cultural survivals on the Lower East Side.  Many of these have already vanished. The Lower East Side is considered by heritage researchers as the “Jewish Plymouth Rock” in America, which for a time throbbed with undiluted East European culture.  Narrated by Michael Chaplan, M.A. Anthropology.
