Through this interactive session, teachers will receive the context for Jewish immigration between 1880-1924, discuss the various push and pull factors that brought Jewish immigrants to America, explore the cultural pressures and contributions of Jewish Americans, and grapple with the repercussions of the 1924 Immigration Act.
