Butchers, Babushkas, and Consumer Activism: The 1902 Kosher Meat Boycott
Jewish Women's Archive is presenting a Webinar on an early and little-known story of Jewish immigrant activism. In 1902 in New York City the price of kosher beef jumped 50% overnight, and immigrant Jewish women organized a boycott against the butcher shops. Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, Director of Public History, and Etta King, Education Program Manager, will host this inaugural program in the Jewish Women’s Archive 2012-2013 education Webinar series. The Webinar is being offered at two times, 1:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Registration is free.
