SUNDAY, MARCH 19, 2023, 2 PM
Join us at the New Haven Museum for a look at the lives of several remarkable Jewish women—Anni Albers, Ellen Ash Peters, Florence Wald—in this Women’s History Month talk by Elizabeth Rose, executive director of the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford (JHSGH). Organized as the inaugural program held in memory of City Historian Judith Ann Schiff, the program will include speakers from the Jewish Historical Society of Greater New Haven (JHSGNH), who will discuss Schiff’s life and legacy as a New Haven trailblazer in her own right.
The program is offered in conjunction with the JHSGH’s traveling exhibit, Trailblazer: Connecticut Jewish Women Making History, on view at the New Haven Museum through March 31, which highlights the stories of 12 Jewish women from Connecticut who carved their own paths despite untold challenges and obstacles. Photographs, publications, and objects related to Schiff can be seen in the Community Case in the Museum’s rotunda and are from the collection of the JHSGNH. A Museum board member as well as the City Historian, Schiff was a Yale University archivist and a founder of the JHSGNH and the Ethnic Heritage Center.
