Gathering Together! Join the JHSSC in Charleston as we host the SJHS
Plans are underway for the joint meeting of the Southern Jewish Historical Society and the JHSSC to be held in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, the weekend of October 22–24.
In addition to walking tours of the sites of Jewish Charleston, conference-goers will gather for Shabbat dinner and services at iconic Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim. The weekend will feature a full slate of panels under the theme of “Expanding the Archive(s) of Southern Jewish History,” chosen to celebrate 25 years of the Jewish Heritage Collection at the College of Charleston’s Special collections and its curator, Dale Rosengarten. Topics will range widely, including forays into southern Jewish history and creative arts, collecting Kentucky Jewish history, and refugee politics.
Registration will open June 15 at https://jhssc.org/events/upcoming/
