On Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 8:00 PM, Beth El Synagogue of East Windsor presents a zoom event, “How Jewish Women Shaped Modern America with Prof. Joyce Antler, Brandeis University.”

As activists and rebels, lawyers and judges, rabbis, writers and more, Jewish women influenced many of the key political events and social movements of our time—suffrage, peace, civil liberties, civil rights, labor rights, and women’s rights. Presenting the challenges and achievements of many of these remarkable women, the talk reveals the groundbreaking role of Jewish women in shaping our society.

Joyce Antler is the Samuel Lane Professor of American Jewish History and Culture and Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University. She is the author or editor of ten books, and is currently writing a history of radical feminism and Jewish identity.
