Hassia DIner: Wandering Jews – Peddlers and the Discovery of the New World

January 23, 2015 Newton

Jews have been “on the road” for centuries, selling goods from packs on their backs and from wagons. Starting at the end of the eighteenth century, peddling provided the occupational engine that drove Jewish migrations out of Europe and the Ottoman Empire and to a series of “new worlds,” from the British Isles to Australia and South Carolina. Professor Diner will share how this very particular mundane occupation transformed and shaped Jewish history and the histories of all these places.
