Lunch & Learn: Explore the Tenement Museum

In this virtual Lunch and Learn, participants will bring a lunch and will connect with other Osher members over a casual, shared meal. Following lunch, we will travel virtually to the Tenement Museum in New York for an interactive online visit with a live Tenement Museum educator. The tour will take you inside 97 Orchard Street and through the history of a the Rogarshevsky family, a Jewish American family from Lithuania who lived there. By 1911, the Lower East Side had become both the most densely populated area in the country and the largest Jewish city in the world. The family earned a living in the garment industry. This program explores how Fannie and Abraham Rogarshevsky and their six children made their way through a turbulent decade while balancing work, family and their religious faith.

Dates and locations to be announced.
