In the 1925 novel, Bread Givers, set in the Jewish Polish immigrant neighborhood of New York, protagonist Sara Smolinsky rebels against her father’s strict understanding of gender roles and demands the right to an education and marriage of her own choice.

This two-part class taught by Dr. Karen Keely explores Jewish immigrant womanhood of the early 20th century through Yezierska’s semi-autobiographical novel. This adult learning class takes place at Temple Sinai, 50 Sewall Avenue, Brookline. All are welcome.
