Studying Advertisements in pre-1939 Jewish Press: Methods and Challenges

Dear Friends,

The main pages of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Jewish perio¬dicals are filled with heated discussions concerning major issues which defined Jewish life in various places. Sections with advertisements printed in the historical Jewish press offer a close look at everyday Jewish life seen through the prism of consumer culture. We will explore this topic in February 2022 during an online workshop; in the mean time, we urge you to read (and distribute!) our CFP.
