Jewish Arlington: 1900-1940

Marymount University Library Auditorium
2807 North Glebe Road
Arlington, Virginia 22207

Little has been written about the Jewish community in Arlington, especially before World War II. Our speaker, Jessica Kaplan, shares her research about the Jewish community in Arlington. Like other immigrant groups, Jews faced special difficulties assimilating to American society due to language and cultural differences. As Jews, they also had to contend with the age-old prejudice of antisemitism. Ms. Kaplan explores how Arlingtorn Jewish residents adapted to these challenges and built a thriving community. This event is online or in-person Visit website for details on both.
