The Arlington Historical Society will host a program on “Jewish Arlington: 1900-1940” both online and in person on Thursday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m.
Speaker Jessica Kaplan will share her research about Jewish merchants, families and community-builders in the county.
“Like other immigrant groups, Jews faced special difficulties assimilating to American society due to language and cultural differences,” Historical Society officials said. “They also had to contend with the age-old prejudice of antisemitism. Ms. Kaplan explores how Arlington’s Jewish residents adapted to these challenges and built a thriving community.”
The in-person meeting will be held at Reinsch Library at Marymount University; no registration is required. Registration for the online option is required by Aug. 10.
