Forgotten Stories from the Homefront: Jews in Western Pennsylvania During WW I
November 12, 2017 , 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
title: Forgotten Stories from the Homefront: Jews in Western Pennsylvania During World War I.
description: The Rauh Jewish History Program & Archives at the Heinz History Center presents Forgotten Stories from the Homefront: Jews in Western Pennsylvania During World War I. A century ago, as Jewish soldiers from Western Pennsylvania were fighting in battles overseas during World War I, their Jewish communities were fighting a separate set of battles back home. These local battles were about patriotism, civil rights, Zionism, fundraising, unionism, religious traditions and communal bonds. Through an array of stories, researchers Tammy Hepps and Eric Lidji will show how world-changing events challenged and enhanced the identities of typical Jews, living where we live today.
