The Lower East Side: A Window on American Jewish Immigration

view options No geographical space has loomed as large in the American Jewish imagination as Manhattan's Lower East Side, the New York neighborhood that became a hub for thousands of Jewish immigrants during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and has continued to serve as a reservoir of Jewish memory ever since. This course will examine how the Lower East Side emerged as a Jewish immigrant neighborhood, and will explore the rich culture produced by its many institutions-stores, synagogues, tenement houses, restaurants, cafes, Yiddish newspapers, theaters, publishing houses, and bookstores, among others. We will look at how the Lower East Side changed after the period of mass Jewish immigration ended, and also compare it to Jewish immigrant neighborhoods in other parts of the United States.
