Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2019. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

As immigrants, Jewish men from the middle of the nineteenth century into the twentieth sought to make a living and establish new homes in America by means of an old and familiar Jewish occupation. By doing so they learned much about America and Americans learned about them. Hasia Diner explores the experience of these Jewish immigrants who came to the United States and got their start as on the road peddlers. Led by: Dr. Hasia Diner, Paul and Sylvia Steinberg Professor of American Jewish history at New York University
