“New Israel/New England: Jews and Puritans in Early America” by Michael Hoberman

Judah Monis was born in Italy, received a Jewish education in Livorno and Amsterdam, and traveled to New York in 1716, where he affiliated briefly with that city’s Shearith Israel congregation. Why and how he ended up moving to Cambridge, Massachusetts, accepting a teaching position at Harvard and converting to Christianity will be the subject of this talk by Michael Hoberman, the author of “New Israel/New England: Jews and Puritans in Early America.”

Hoberman teaches American literature at Fitchburg State University. His most recent book, “A Hundred Acres of America: The Geography of Jewish American Literary History,” was published in 2018 by Rutgers University Press, was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2019 and has been favorably reviewed in, among others, the LA Review of Books, Shofar and MELUS Journal. He lives in Buckland, Massachusetts.
