The Ner Tamid Lectures – Coming to America

The first of my lecture series presented since coming to Las Vegas presented at and with the support of Congregation Ner Tamid. Special thanks to Rabbi Sanford Akselrad, Rachel Raskin and to Roberta Unger for their support.

Coming to America is an overview of the Jewish journey from a hostile Europe to the new American lands and deals broadly with the various eras of Jewish-American life, topics that will later be explored in more depth. Two versions are below, the first is a PowerPoint version and the second a PDF of the same file:
