Event Description

Exploring Jewish life in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi echoes the theme of journey that has been a part of Jewish life for centuries. Jews have journeyed to escape oppression, to seek opportunity, and to preserve their heritage. The journey continues today as the southern Jewish population shift from small towns to metropolitan centers. The southern Jewish experience is about their work places and sacred places, the people that live in the communities, and how their Jewish lives are changing. Each of these areas is explored in the Jewish photographic road trip.

On loan from the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience.


Bagels and Grits: Exploring Jewish Life in the Deep South is on display in the Yiddish Book Center's Brechner Gallery May 1 - September 30, 2011.
