    Deborah Dash Moore, author of Jewish New York

    Author Deborah Dash Moore, in conversation with JCC Manhattan's social justice activist in residence, Ruth Messinger, will explore the lesser-known history of the Jews of New York. We will consider the long history of Jewish activism in New York City, including Jewish radicalism,  feminism, and internationalism on behalf of Soviet Jewry. We'll also look at the religious repercussions of living in a large and diverse city, including the rise of New York's unique religious pluralism, grounded in the reality of the city itself—its neighborhoods, diversity, economic niches, and intellectual culture.
