Shalom Y’all! This seminar opens with three pre-trip online learning sessions and continues on the cobblestoned streets of Charleston and Savannah. Together, we will explore Jewish history and identity in the American South, with a focus on Jewish settlement in the colonial era, Jewish experiences during the Civil War, and the Jewish contributions to the American Civil Rights movement. An exploration of the region's sites, sounds, and tastes will add to our experience of learning from local scholars and residents about how Jewish identity and community are crafted today. Both seminar and learning sessions are led by renowned Melton teacher Dr. Joellyn Zollman, PhD, whose infectious passion for Jewish history and Jewish architecture will grab you immediately. This foray into our Southern Jewish heritage is one you won't want to miss!
