Hudson Area Library History Talk: Jewish Commercial Activities in Colonial New York, Oct 7


The Hudson Area Library History Room in collaboration with the Jacob Leisler Institute for the Study of Early New York History presents To Trade, Traffique, Buy & Sell as the Rest of the Inhabitants’: Jewish commercial and Communal Activities in Colonial New York, a talk by Noah Gelfand on Thursday, October 7. The talk explores the economic and religious endeavors of New York’s growing Jewish population in the era when they developed the colony into one of the most important locations for Jews in the Atlantic world.

Noah L. Gelfand holds a Ph.D. in Atlantic History from New York University and is currently a Doctoral Lecturer in the History Department at Hunter College, where he teaches courses on early U.S. history. His scholarship focuses on the early modern Jewish Atlantic world. He is also a Trustee of the Jacob Leisler Institute.

The Jacob Leisler Library Lectures are made partially possible through the generous support of the Van Dyke Family Association.
