Jonathan Sarna at the JCC of Columbus

Monday, May 6 7:15PM
1125 College Ave. Columbus, OH 43209

On Sunday, May 6, attend a lecture by Jonathan Sarna, author of When General Grant Expelled the Jews at the JCC in Columbus, Ohio. When General Grant Expelled the Jews is an “excellent study from the gifted and resourceful historian Joanthan D. Sarna” (Washington Post) of General Ulysses S. Grant’s decision, in the middle of the Civil War, to order the expulsion of all Jews from the territory under his command, and the reverberations of that decision on Grant’s political career, on the nascent American Jewish community, and on the American political process.

Jonathan D. Sarna is the Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History at Brandeis University. He has written, edited, or co edited more than twenty books and is best known for the acclaimed American Judaism: A History, which received the Jewish Book council’s Everett Family Foundation Jewish Book of the Year Award in 2004.
