Upper E Side

The Jewish Museum | 1109 5th Ave at 92nd Street

The Jewish Museum is pleased to host Soviet Roots, American Branches, the third program of the Jewish Book Council's new series, Unpacking the Book: Jewish Writers in Conversation. The evening is co-sponsored by the Genesis Philanthropy Group and will feature Yelena Akhtiorskaya, Gal Beckerman, and Boris Fishman, who each are part of, or write about, the Russian American Jewish community. Each year brings a new crop of voices reflecting on Russian Jewish experience in America: we are gathering a range of voices to discuss what it means to be a Russian American Jew today, and why Russian Jewish literature is such a stand-out in its field.

The Jewish Book Council invites Jewish Museum members and friends to join the event. The program is free but space is limited, please RSVP.
