Love Affairs: Marriage, Romance and Early American Jews


Join us for a free public lecture by Dr. Laura Arnold Leibman on how the notion of marriage changed among early American Jews during the colonial era through the early 19th century.

Dr. Leibman is the award-winning author of Messianism, Secrecy and Mysticism: A New Interpretation of Early American Jewish Life, recipient of the 2012 National Jewish Book Award in Jewish American Studies and the Jordan Schnitzer Award of the Association of Jewish Studies in the Cultural and Media Studies category.




This is an ongoing program in the Celebrate 350 series, a permanent tribute to the arrival of Jews in New York City.
