Board members, volunteers, and staff representing the Jewish Historical Society of North Jersey visited the Center For Jewish History in New York City on Sunday, November 13. Participants were given an orientation of the facility which comprises five educational, cultural and historical institutions including the American Jewish Historical Society, the American Sephardi Federation, the Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. The tour included viewing current exhibitions of these respective institutions as well as visiting the Collection Management and Conservation Wing, the Reading Room and Genealogy Institute. The trip provided a most informative and educational experience for all.

As December approaches, we are wrapping up an eventful year for the Jewish Historical Society of North Jersey. Back in May, we hosted an exhibit curated by Cristina Deutsch highlighting local Paterson sports figures of the 20th Century. The exhibit ran at the Wayne Y from the beginning of May through the entire summer. Click here to view photos of the event.
Here are a couple of write-ups from the Opening Ceremony:
Our readers may be interested in attending Leslie Rupley’s book tour which is heading to Northern New Jersey from November 15th until the 19th. Leslie will be promoting her new book “Beyond the Silk Mills.”
“In Beyond the Silk Mills, Rupley spins a compelling saga of family discord, ambition, romance, and regret. T e Epstein family’s struggle during the early twentieth century in New York City and Paterson, New Jersey, illuminates the roots of modern feminism and contemporary labor issues.”
