Join us for a multi-media presentation given by librarians, Linda Stern & Helaine Davis focusing on the remarkable Jewish women of Boston, who they were and what they did.
Who was the first mother elected to the Boston school committee? Who was a “mistress of disguises” when she repeatedly entered Jordan Marsh to organize the clerks? Who was one of the first American nutritionists and linked proper diet with good health? Who was known as: “The Last of the Red Hot Mamas” and began her career performing in blackface? Learn answers to these questions and more! Following the presentation there will be a Tour of Vilna Shul and other sites on the North Slope of Beacon Hill.
